A straw shows how the wind blows.
It is an ill wind that does not blow good for someone.
Make the hay while the sun shines.
Far off what God sends.
You never miss the water until the well runs dry. After a gatherer come a scatterer and after sorrow comes joy.
Too late to spare when all is spent
It is never too late to learn
All is well that ends well.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Show me your company and I’ll tell you what you are.
