Time is a good storyteller.
What the ear will not hear will not trouble the heart.
A borrowed horse has hard hoofs.
Throwing apples into an orchard.
Humility without gentility is like a pudding without fat.
The world wouldn't make a race horse out of an ass.
Deep waters run smoothly.
A man without learning and wearing good clothes is like a gold ring on a pig's nose.
The greatest curse of any man's life is a smoking chimney and a scolding wife.
Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.
There is no feast till a roast and no torment till marriage.
Marry a mountain girl and you marry the mountain.
Every dog barks outside it's own door.
Of small account is a fly till it gets in the eye.
Good men made laws but bad men made them do so.
A hair on the head is worth two in the brush.
A ring on the hand is worth two on the phone.
