Little strokes fell great oaks. At the bottom of the sack you will find the bill. Words are dwarfs, deeds are giants. When a neighbour gets divorced everyone thinks of his own wife. What the farmer doesn’t know, he will not eat. Sometimes you have to be silent in order to be heard. The devil hides himself in details. What good is a golden gallows if they are going to hang you. Avoid those who don’t like bread and children. Luck is on your path, one takes it, the other passes by it. Mountains and valleys stand firm but people meet. The tongue is the worst piece of meat in the world.
