Love many, trust few and always paddle your own canoe
A stitch in time, saves nine
Even a dog knows the difference between being stumbled over and being kicked
A dog as he sleeps barks as if on the track of the hare
For the LORD had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
One writes to make a home for oneself, on paper, in time and in others' minds.
