Love is one-eyed, hate is blind. Eggs and oaths are easily broken. No one gets into trouble without his own help. It is good to lend to God and the soil; they pay good interest. No one can be caught in places he does not visit. What you are is God’s gift to you what you do with yourself is your gift to God. Great men’s requests are commands. God feeds the birds that use their wings. He who doesn’t open his eyes when he buys must still open his purse to pay. Better the child cry, than the mother sigh. If you would live healthy, be old early.
