A kind word never broke anyone's mouth.

A dog owns nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied.

Man is incomplete until he marries.
After that, he is finished.

It is better to be born lucky than rich. 

Put silk on a goat, and it's still a goat.

Marriages are all happy, its having
breakfast together that causes all the trouble.

A friend's eye is a good mirror.

It's no use carrying an umbrella
if your shoes are leaking.

God is good, but never dance in a small boat.

Drink is the curse of the land.
It makes you fight with your neighbor.
It makes you shoot at your landlord
and it makes you miss him.

Never iron a four-leaf clover,
because you don't want to press your luck.
