A verse may find him who a sermon flies.
War is death's feast.
Source: Outlandish Proverbs
War makes thieves and peace hangs them.
The mill cannot grind with the water that is past.
Every mile is two in winter.
The house shows the owner.
He that lies with the dogs, riseth with fleas.
The wearer knows where the shoe wrings.
