Send a fool to close the shutters and he’ll close them all over town.
A fool is his own informer.
He who is afraid of a thing gives it power over him.
A fat paunch never bred a subtle mind.
You are where you eat.
It is the fate of the coconut husk to float, of the stone to sink.
I will destroy my enemies by converting them to friends.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.
If a fool and his money are soon parted, why are there so many rich fools?
