  1. A barking dog never bites.
    The longer you go the more you know.
    The nearer the Church the further from God.
    Early to bed and early to rise make a man healthy, wealthy and wise and late to bed and late to rise brings a man to ruination and debt in his eyes.
    Children and chickens are always picking Bad weeds grow fast.
    One paid is never craved.
    Short accounts make good friends.
    It is wise not to seek a secret and honest not to reveal it.
    If you get two spoons in your cup you are going to a christening.
    If you got two knives on your plate you will be asked to a wedding.
