Life is half spent before we know what it is.
Love and a cough cannot be hid.
Love your neighbor, yet pull not down your hedge.
Marry your son when you will: your daughter when you can.
My house, my house, though thou art small, thou art to me the Escurial.
For want of a nail, the shoe is lost; for want of a shoe the horse is lost; and for want of a horse the rider is lost.
All is well with him who is beloved of his neighbors.
