It takes a thief to catch a thief.
Never be content with your lot. Try for a lot more.
Silence is golden, speech is silver.
The worm turns.
Leaves enough, but few grapes.
Old age is ripeness.
Take care of your pennies and your dollars will take care
of your widow's next husband.
What a story these old walls could tell.
In politics, a man must learn to rise above principle.
Men that have much business must have much pardon.
Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
The wish is the father of the deed.
I'd rather be red than dead.
Man can't live in this world alone.
Practice what you preach.
The cemeteries are filled with people who thought
the world couldn't get along without them.
If you can't lick 'em, join 'em.
Man is like a banana: when he leaves the bunch,
he gets skinned.
Put up or shut up.
The child is the father of the man.
You make a mountain of a mole-hill.
It takes three generation to make a gentleman.
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
Step on a crack break your mother's back.
Two's company, three's a crowd.
I am just as good as you are, and a damned sight better.
Man cannot live by bread alone.
Poets are born, not made.
The bad workman blames his tools.
You can't unscramble an egg.
