There isn’t a just person without a sin. A smart man always takes, a fool always gives. Each sin has its consequences. Even the horse is tired on the way to church. The young ones dance as the old ones whistle. Old love does not rust. Give the devil a little finger and he will take the hand. Dogs bark at the last. The man needs the woman as the ship needs an anchor. Once you’ve cut the bread, you cannot put it together again. If you can’t use your eyes, follow your nose. The quiet pig digs a deep hole. A crow will not pick out the eyes of another crow.
