Idleness is the roof of all evil

If at first you don’t´ succeed, try, try, try again

If each would sweep before his own door, we should have a clean city

If it were not for hope, the heart would break

If there were no clouds, we should not enjoy the sun

If you cannot bite, never show your teeth

If you don´t make mistakes, you don´t make anything

If you don´t speculate, you can´t accumulate

If you run after two hares, you will catch neither

If you won´t work, you shan´t eat

If you would be well served, serve yourself

III gotten goods never thrive

In for a penny, in for a pound

In wine there is truth

It is all sitting at Rome and striving with the Pope

It is a poor heart that never rejoices

It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive

It is easy to be wise after the event

It is love that makes the world go round

It is not work that kills, but worry

It is no use crying over spilt milk

It is the first step that is difficult

It is useless to flog a dead horse

It never rains but it pours

It´s a long lane that has no turning

It´s an ill wind that blows nobody any good

It takes two to make a quarrel

It will be all the same a hundred years from hence

If you would be well served, serve yourself
