You will never know a man till you do business with him. When the heart is full the tongue will speak. All that’s said in the kitchen should not be told in the hall. A proud mind and an empty purse grow ill together. A plump widow needs no advertisement. Understand the boat and the boat will understand you. They talk of my drinking but never my thirst. The geese will tell it in autumn. Better be ill spoken of by one before all than by all before one. The Devil’s a busy bishop in his own diocese. Never take a wife till you know what to do with her. Every man to his taste, as the man said when he kissed his cow.
