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.
None knows the weight of another's burden.
The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one.
