A kiss without a beard is like an egg without salt. An old rat won’t go into the trap. When the shepherd strays, the sheep stray. Were everyone to sweep in front of his own house, every street would be clean. Soon ripe, soon rotten; soon wise, soon foolish. One sprinkles the most sugar where the tart is burnt. There are more thieves than are hanged. When two quarrel both are in the wrong. Stroke your dog, and he’ll spoil your clothes. More flies are caught with a spoonful of syrup than with a barrel full of vinegar.
Netherlands is known for Vincent van Gogh
