Never give advice unless asked.
Envy eats nothing, but its own heart.
Rest breeds rust.
In bad fortune hold out, in good hold in.
Between the anvil and the hammer.
Those that will not hear must be made to feel.
Even the lion has to defend himself against flies.
To advise is easier than to help.
To call war the soil of courage and virtue is like calling debauchery the soil of love.
Work is our business; it's success is God s.
God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.
An old error is always more popular than a new truth.
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
Luck seeks those who flee and flees those who seek it.
What the lion cannot manage to do the fox can.
Revenge converts a little right into a great wrong.
Too much humility is pride.
What little Jack does not learn, big John will never.
It is better to trust the eyes rather than the ears.
Charity sees the need, not the cause.
