A great ship asks deep water.
There would be no great ones if there were no little ones.
Was ever grief like mine?

A crooked log makes a straight fire.
By no means run in debt: take thine own measure. Who cannot live on twenty pound a year, Cannot on forty.

Deceive not thy physician, confesasor, nor lawyer.
Many things are lost for want of asking.
Drink not the third glass, which thou canst not tame When once it is within thee.
When a dog is drowning, everyone offers him a drink.
