Stairs are climbed step by step.
He that falls by himself never cries.
Better a wise foe than a foolish friend.
Even though you know a thousand things, ask the man who knows one.
A weapon is an enemy even to its owner.
Kind words will unlock an iron door.
Patience is bitter, but it bears sweet fruit.
A lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man.
A good companion shortens the longest road.
If skill could be gained by watching, every dog would become a butcher.
The devil tempts all other men, but idle men tempt the devil.
Thorns and roses grow on the same tree.
There is an uphill for every downhill, and a downhill for every uphill.
He that conceals his grief finds no remedy for it.
Coffee should be black as Hell, strong as death, and sweet as love.
A knife-wound heals, but a tongue wound festers.
A thousand friends are too few; one enemy is one too many.
A kind word warms a man throughout three winters.
Study from new books but from old teachers.
Beauty Passes, wisdom remains.
A cup of coffee commits one to forty years of friendship.
A small key opens big doors.
Two captains will sink the ship.
Listen a hundred times; ponder a thousand times; speak once.
A wise man remembers his friends at all times; a fool, only when he has need of them.
