A drink precedes a story.
Time is a great story teller.
A friend’s eye is a good mirror.
Even a small thorn causes festering.
Good as drink is, it ends in thirst.
It is a long road that has no turning.
As the big hound is, so will the pup be.
A trade not properly learned is an enemy.
Put silk on a goat, and it’s still a goat.
When the liquor was gone the fun was gone
There is no fireside like your own fireside.
It is not a secret if it is known by three people.
It takes time to build castles. Rome was not built in a day.
The man with the boots does not mind where he places his foot.
If you do not sow in the spring you will not reap in the autumn.
When a twig grows hard it is difficult to twist it. Every beginning is weak.
