Don’t pull hard enough to break the rope.
By going gains the mill, and not by standing still.
Better is one “take this,” than two “i-will-give-you.”
A great thrust of a lance at a dead moor.
For a bad tongue scissors.
Children: one is one, two is fun, three is a houseful.
Old donkeys do not learn languages.
A goose cannot graze after him.
From the sublime to the ridiculous is only one step.
