The wish is father to the thought.
The wind will let us neither sail nor stay.
The whisperer's tongue is worse than serpent's venom.
The warnings of age are the weapons of youth.
The unexpected always happens.
The toothless man envies those who can eat well.
The title is one thing, the contents another.
The tired ox treads surest.
The times are changing; we too are changing with them.
The test of merit is success.
The tears of an heir are laughter under a mask.
The tale is marred in the telling.
The swift are overtaken by the slow.
The swans will not sing till the jackdaws are quiet.
The swan sings before death.
The submitting to one wrong brings on another.
The subject's love is the king's lifeguard.
The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
The sow has been greeted with music.
The smoke of our own country is brighter than fire abroad.
