He is a good friend that speaks well of us behind our backs.
He is a wise man who speaks little.
He is lifeless that is faultless.
He is not fit to command others that cannot command himself.
He is not laughed at that laughs at himself first.
He is wise that is honest.
He knows most who speaks least.
He laughs best who laughs last.
He sets the fox to keep the geese.
He that climbs high falls heavily.
He that will not work shall not eat.
He who does not advance loses ground.
He who makes constant complaint gets little compassion.
He who makes no mistakes makes nothing.
He who risks nothing gains nothing.
