God helps those who help themselves.
Well done better than well said.
Lost time is never found again.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Begun in anger ends in shame.
3 kept secret. 2 were dead.
One today is worth two tomorrows.
Doors of wisdom are never shut.
Words show wit. Actions show meaning.
Beauty and folly are old companions.
Games lubricate the body and mind.
When you've finished changing, you're finished.
Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.
Our necessities never equal our wants.
A penny saved, a penny earned.
Creditors have better memories than debtors.
Half a truth often great lie.
