Waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both.
Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.
Well done is better than well said.
Well done, is twice done.
A fat kitchen, a lean will.
Some are weather-wise, some are otherwise.

If a man could have just half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.
