A tale never loses in the telling.
Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead.
Be slow in choosing a friend, but slower in changing him.
Better be ill spoken of by one before all than by all before one.
Confessed faults are half mended.
Confession is good for the soul.
Egotism is an alphabet of one letter.
Either a man or a mouse.
Fools look to tomorrow. Wise men use tonight.
Get what you can and keep what you have; that's the way to get rich.
Learn young, learn fair; learn old, learn more.
Luck never gives; it only lends.
Never draw your dirk when a blow will do it.
Never let your feet run faster than your shoes.
Take care of your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves.
The day has eyes, the night has ears.
The devil's boots don't creak.
There never came ill of good advisement.
They are good that are away.
They that live longest, see most.
They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind.
They that will not be counseled cannot be helped.
Twelve highlanders and a bagpipe make a rebellion.
What may be done at any time will be done at no time.
When the cup is full, carry it even.
