Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
He that will not work shall not eat.
He who does not advance loses ground.
He who makes constant complaint gets little compassion.
He who makes no mistakes makes nothing.
He who risks nothing gains nothing.
History repeats itself.
Honesty is the best policy.
I cannot be your friend and your flatterer too.
If a man deceives me once, shame on him, if he deceives me twice, shame on me.
If you make yourself an ass, don’t complain if people ride you.
If your ears glow, someone is talking of you.
If you run after two hares, you will catch neither.
If you sell the cow, you sell her milk too.
If you venture nothing, you will have nothing.
If you want knowledge, you must toil for it.
Industry is the parent of success.
It is better to die when life is a disgrace.
It is easier to get money than to keep it.
It is easy to be wise after the event.
It is easy to open a shop but hard to keep it always open.
It is hard to please all.
It is never too old to learn.
It is no use crying over spilt milk.
It is the first step that costs troublesome.
It is the unforeseen that always happens.
It is too late to grieve when the chance is past.
It never rains but it pours.
It takes three generations to make a gentleman.
Jack of all trades and master of none.
Judge not from appearances.
Justice has long arms.
Keep good men company and you shall be of the number.
Kill two birds with one stone.
Kings go mad, and the people suffer for it.
Kings have long arms.
Knowledge is power.
Knowledge makes humble, ignorance makes proud.
Learn and live.
Learning makes a good man better and ill man worse.
Learn not and know not.
Learn to walk before you run.
Let bygones be bygones.
Let sleeping dogs lie.
Let the cat out of the bag.
Lies can never changes fact.
Lies have short legs.
Life is but a span.
Life is half spent before we know what it is.
Life is not all roses.
Life without a friend is death.
Like a rat in a hole.
Like author, like book.
Like father, like son.
Like for like.
Like knows like.
