'In scoldings and praise her love glistened Blinding us with its contradictions .' Zev Torres ake do with what you have. Every man is the architect of his own fortune. If the shoe fits, wear it. Never spend time with people who don't respect you. You cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Before healing others, heal yourself. Feed a cold and starve a fever. Let bygones be bygones. Everyone gets their just deserts. Let the punishment fit the crime. Little leaks sink the ship. The proof is in the pudding. What breaks in a moment may take years to mend. What you give is what you get. You can't buy an inch of time with an inch of gold. Any plan is bad that cannot be changed. Be the change you wish to see in the world. E'er you remark another's sin, bid your own conscience look within. Familiarity breeds contempt. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. If God wants people to suffer, he sends them too much understanding. For news of the heart, ask the face. Forethought is easy, repentance is hard. Give thy thoughts no tongue. Having two ears and one tongue, we should listen twice as much as we speak. A man is known by the company he keeps. Ain't no pot so crooked, you can't find lid to fit.

Difficulties make you a jewel. Don't buy other people's problems. Don't let the critics get you down. Every adversity carries with it the seed of equal or greater benefit. Everybody makes mistakes.
