speak of the devil.
to suffer for one’s wisdom.
newbroom sweeps clean.
a miss is as good as a mile.
enough is as good as a feast．
the supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.
if winter comes,can spring be far behind?
a bad compromise is better than a good lawsuit.
a borrowed cloak does not keep one warm.
speech is silver, but silence is golden.
a barking dog never bites.
butter to butter is no relish.
better be alone than in bad company.
believe somebody on his bare word.
better an open enemy than a false friend.
by gambling we lose both time and treasure, two things most precious to the life of man.
call no man happy until he dies.
better be poor than wicked.
cast not out the foul water till you bring in the clean.
deeds are males, and words are females.
councils of war never fight.
