You cannot make a crab walk straight.
Comparisons are odious.
When the cat is away, the mice will play.
Love is the mother of love.
Every man has his fault.
A crooked stick will have a crooked shadow.
Marriage comes by destiny.
The first step is the hardest.
He that respects not is not respected.
Life is half spent before we know what it is.
The fox preys farthest from his hole.
Virtue is her own reward.
Well fed, wed bred.
Among the blind the one eyed man is the king.
A man becomes learned by asking questions.
Wet behind the ears.
The danger past and God forgotten.
Wisdom in the mind is better than money in the hand.
Go while the going is good.
Custom makes all things easy.
Pour water into a sieve.
