The house shows the owner.
He that lies with the dogs, riseth with fleas.
The wearer knows where the shoe wrings.

Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, A box where sweets compacted lie.
Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, a box where sweets compacted lie.
By all means use sometimes to be alone.

Follow not truth too near the heels, lest it dash out thy teeth.
