Keep the eyes wide open before marriage and half shut afterwards.
Experience keeps a dear school, yet fools will learn in no other.
Little strokes fell great oaks.
He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some; for he that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing.
To lengthen thy life lessen thy meals.
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of.
Trust thy self, and another shall not betray thee.
Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.
Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.
