A friendship that dies is never reborn.
Remove the stone and you won't stumble.
Never drop the bone to catch the shadow.
Don't carry all your eggs in one basket.
Don't hang your hat higher than you can reach.
There is no use in wiping your butt before you defecate.
Don't call the alligator a big-mouth till you have crossed the river.
If a man gives you a basket to carry water, it means that he hates you.
