Feet which are always on the move
are not the feet of a hard-working man.

Respect is given to wealth, not to men.

the shortcomings of the flock.

One word in its place is worth a camel.

should a bone be thrown to it.

should be able to bear the bitters of it.

Though a dog becomes fat,
its meat is not edible.
