It's better to be born lucky than born rich.
It is better to be idle than working for nothing.
Good luck is better than early rising
You will live another year because we have been just been talking of you.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
A wise man is better than a foolish king.
It is better to be a half a hour early than half a muinite late
Two heads are wiser than one.
A wise child makes glad parents
There are good goods in small parsels
