The best friends are fewest. Straight ahead is shortest, but not always easiest. Either conform to the customs or flee the country. To be a hero hang on for a minute longer. The less you know, the less you forget. Good fortune is loaned, not owned. Where age gets in, he will never get out again. The lame runs if he has to. The pardon may be more severe than the penalty. Better ten hairs on the head than one in the soup. If you bend the rights, they will break. All weather is passing.
