a hero only appears once the tiger is dead.
the fox may grow grey, but never good.
without entering the tigers lair, how can one catch the tigers cub?
dread is produced by a powerlessness.
one careless move loses the whole game.
he that gapes till he be fed will gape till he be dead.
blessed is he that expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
he that respects not is not respected.
dog bark before they bite.
every cloud has a silver lining.
spare the rod and spoil the child.
it is easy to be wise after the event.
make the best of a bad bargain.
he that makes a thing too fine, breaks it.
he is rich that has few wants.
they brag most who can do least.
self-praise is no recommendation.
a good conscience is a continuous feast.
sometimes the best gain is to lose.
look on both sides of the shield.
