To conquer without risk is to triumph without glory. Unknown

Seize opportunity by the beard, for it is bald behind. Unknown

Out of sight, out of mind; long absent, soon forgotten. Unknown

Don’t look for more honour than your learning merits. Unknown

It is impossible to change your basic characteristics. Unknown

No one is so generous as he who has nothing to give. Unknown

He who buys what he needs not, sells what he needs. Unknown

One good head is better than a hundred strong hands. Unknown

Cold feet are often the direct result of burned fingers! Unknown

Better go to heaven in rags than to hell in embroidery. Unknown

Mediocrity is climbing molehills without sweating. Unknown

Don’t let your sorrow come higher than your knees. Unknown

An order is easier to obey when issued with a smile. Unknown

Great souls have wills; feeble ones have only wishes. Unknown

Don’t stay long when the husband is not at home. Unknown

Reason is the wise man's guide, example the fool’s. Unknown

For every stormy wind, a calm of peace will come. Unknown

Pray not for lighter burdens but for stronger backs. Unknown

A person with a bad name is already half-hanged. Unknown

We must govern the clock, not be governed by it. Unknown

Worries go down better with soup than without. Unknown
