Better a thousand times careful than once dead.
The cat loves fish, but she's loath to wet her feet.
They who increase knowledge, increase sorrow
Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.
It's always darkest before the dawn
If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
Do not look where you fell but where you slipped.
Glutton: one who digs his grave with his teeth.
The end justifies the means.
Good nature without prudence, is foolishness.
The robes of lawyers are lined with the obstinacy of clients.
Danger past, God forgotten.
No one tests the depth of a river with both feet.
Step by step one goes very far.
Let the punishment fit the crime.
