A fool may give wise man counsel


A fool may make money but it takes a wise man to spend it


A friend in need is a friend indeed


A friend is easier lost than found


A friend smile is better than a fool smile


A full purse makes the mouth to speak


A good dog deserves a good bone


A good horse seldom needs the spur


A good husband makes a good wife

All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy


All’s fair in love and war


Among the blind, one eyed man is king
