Some go out to fleece and come back sheared.
He who does not go to sea knows not how to pray.
When one is helping another, both gain in strength.
There can be no true pleasantry without discretion.
One never falls but on the side toward which one leans.
When the treasure chest is open, even the just man sins.
The slanderer kills a thousand times; the assassin but once.
The idle remarks of the rich are taken as maxims of wisdom by the poor.
