    Proverbs Page 5

  • Poverty parts good company

  • Many a defect is seen in the poor man

  • It's hard to take britches off bare hips

  • The full man does not understand the wants of the hungry

  • A little pleases a poor man

  • Poor men take to the sea; the rich to the mountains

  • Poverty creates sadness

  • Pity the man who does wrong and is poor as well

  • There is nothing in the world so poor as going to hell.

  • The thief is no danger to the beggar.

  • Poverty is no shame.

  • Two things that go for loss-turf on a mountain and the wisdom of a poor man.

  • Shame is ever a part of poverty

  • No-one is ever poor who has the sight of his eyes and the use of his feet A poor man never yet lost his property

  • Poor is the church without music

  • A smokey cabin, a handful of spuds and a flea-filled bed

  • No stopping the force of a going wheel by hand

  • No forcing the sea

  • Don't county your chickens before they are hatched

  • Don't bless the fish till it gets to the land

  • Don't build the sty until the litter comes

  • Praise the ripe field not the green corn

  • Praise the ford when you have crossed it

  • You must empty a box before you fill it again

  • The pride of women and the pride of priests

  • It is difficult to soothe the proud

  • Pride comes before a fall

  • Pride feels no pain The jump of a cock on the dungheap

  • There is no virtue in the herb that is not got in time.

  • A postponement till morning A postponement for ever.
