The first step is as good as half over.
You never know your luck.
Sow nothing, reap nothing.
The wealth of the mind is the only wealth.
You can't judge a tree by its bark.
Clothes do not make the man.
To be both a speaker of words and a doer of deeds.
Variety is the spice of life.
Bad times make a good man.
There is no royal road to learning.
Doubt is the key to knowledge.
Sharp tools make good work.
Wasting time is robbing oneself.
Nurture passes nature.
There is no garden without its weeds.
A man is only as good as what he loves.
Wealth is the test of a man's character.
The best hearts are always the bravest.
