Cross even a stone bridge after you’ve tested it. A physician’s neighbour is never a doctor. A sheet of paper is lighter if two of you don’t try to carry it. The bull that is used to the sun shivers by the light of the moon. One moment is worth more than a thousand gold pieces. If you want a well, only dig in one place. The frog forgets that he was once a tadpole. Tall branches are apt to be broken. Tap even a stone bridge before crossing. Put something off for one day, and ten days will pass. There is no winter without snow, no spring without sunshine, and no happiness without companions. A day-old pigeon cannot fly over a mountain pass. If a pedestrian sees a horse he will want to ride it. Better in the grave than be a slave.
