Every door may be shut but death’s door. He who laughs too much, is hiding his grief. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Old thanks cannot be used for new gifts. One who speaks fair words feeds you with an empty spoon. What does not poison, fattens. He who sups with the devil must use a long spoon. Years and sins are always more than admitted. When the danger has passed, the saints are soon forgotten. A donkey cannot trot for long.
