Give and spend,And God will send.

God help the rich, the poor can beg.A black hen will lay a white egg.

Open not your door when the devil knocks.Hell is wherever heaven is not.

That must be true which all men say.He that cannot pay let him pray.

An old fox needs not be taught tricks.Many sands will sink a ship.

By wisdom peace, by peace plenty.Old bees yield no honey.

Close sits my shirt, but closer my skin.Sorrow is good for nothing but sin.

He who oweth is all in the wrong.A borrowed loan should come laughing home.

Two of a trade seldom agree.Make a virtue out of necessity.

Nobody is fond of fading flowers.Never fish in troubled waters.

It is a long lane that has no turning.There is no royal road to learning.

In the end,All things will mend.
