Who aimeth at the sky Shoots higher much than he that means a tree.

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.
Light burdens, long borne, grow heavy.
