When you are an anvil, hold you still; when you are a hammer, strike your fill.
His bark is worse than his bite.
Be not too presumptuously sure in any business; for things of this world depend on such a train of unseen chances that if it were in man's hands to set the tables, still he would not be certain to win the game.
