  1. Father in Heaven, don't raise me up, don't cast me down.
  2. An ounce of luck is worth more than a pound of gold.
  3. If not for the light, there would be no shadow.
  4. So it goes in this world: one has the purse, the other has the money.
  5. Talking isn't barking.
  6. If a horse knew how small a man is compared to it, it would trample him.
  7. Bad fortune follows the poor man.
  8. From tale-bearing and secrets run as from ghosts.
  9. The heaviest burden is an empty pocket.
  10. A gentle word can break a bone.
