The eyes are the windows of the soul.
Instinct is the nose of the mind.
The best things in life are free.
It’s no use crying over split milk.
You can’t get blood from a stone.
Night is the darkest before the dawn.
There is an exception to every rule.
There is nothing lost by civility.
There is no royal road to learning.
The first step is the most difficult.
Who dares must also risk a fall.
You can’t tell a book by it’s cover.
When the cat’s away, the mice play.
The wise can learn from a fool.
Two heads are better than one.
The unexpected always happens.
Opportunity seldom knocks twice.
The tree is known by it’s fruits.
Two blacks will not make a white.
A fault confessed is half redressed.
Be just before you are generous.
Between two evils choose the less.
Beware the anger of a patient man.
Cut the coat according to the cloth.
Empty vessels make the most sound.
Fewer the words the better a prayer.
Empty sacks never stand upright.
Fact is stronger than fiction.
Familiarity breeds understanding.
Forget injuries but not a kindness.
Good fences make good neighbors.
Little strokes fell great oaks.
It’s better to give than to receive.
It takes two to make a quarrel.
It’s an ill wind that blows no good.
Least said is soonest mended.
Little things please little minds.
Man cannot live by bread alone.
Self praise is no recommendation.
Short reckonings make long friends.
You cannot lose what you never had.
