The eyes are the mirror of the mind. A burnt child dreads the fire or Once bitten, twice shy. Hide the fish with greens. A beggar cannot be a bankrupt. Unless a man is simple, he cannot recognize God, the Simple One. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. The deer has enemies because of its flesh. A cat has nine lives. Don’t grow too high lest a storm makes you tumble down. Half truth is more frightening than falsehood. A one-eyed uncle is better than no uncle at all. A golden key can open any door. A drawing man catches or clutches at a straw . There is not a single village without a river or a rivulet and a folk poet or a minstrel. A fool and his money are soon parted .
