Send a wise man on an errand, and say nothing to him.
Set a thief to catch a thief.
Short accounts make long friends.
Something is better than nothing.
Soon learn, soon forgotten.
Soon ripe, soon rotten.
Speech is silver, silence is gold.
Still water run deep.
Strike the iron while it is hot.
Success belongs to the persevering.
Take things as they come.
Talking mends no holes.
Talk of the devil and he will appear.
Tall trees catch much wind.
Teach others by your example.
The best hearts are always the bravest.
The best man stumbles.
The cat shuts its eyes when stealing.
The danger past and God forgotten.
The darkest hour is nearest the dawn.
The darkest place is under the candlestick.
The devil knows many things because he is old.
The devil sometimes speaks the truth.
