Trust not one night's ice.
Go not for every grief to the physician, nor for every quarrell to the lawyer, nor for every thirst to the pot.
The worst speak something good; if all want sense, God takes a text, and preacheth Patience.

War makes thieves and peace hangs them.
The mill cannot grind with the water that is past.
Every mile is two in winter.
