The old forget, the young don't know.
Charity sees the need, not the cause.
The garden is the poor man's apothecary.
Buying is cheaper than asking.
Nothing weights lighter than a promise.
To bury grief plant a seed.
A country can be judged by the quality of its proverbs
Green Christmas, white Easter
He who conquers his anger has conquered an enemy
Not to be ashamed of sin is to sin double
In bad luck hold out; in good luck, hold in
What is sport to the cat is death to the mouse
A great war leaves the country with three armies - an army of cripples, an army of mourners, and an army of thieves
Who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet.
