Proverbs of the Scots

  • A bad wound may heal but a bad name will kill
  • A friend to all is a friend to none
  • What cannot be helped must be put up with
  • A fool may ask more than a wise man can ever answer
  • Be happy while you're living, For you're a long time dead.
  • Take care of your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves.
  • Twelve highlanders and a bagpipe make a rebellion.
  • Better be ill spoken of by one before all than by all before one.
  • Better keep the devil at the door than turn him out of the house.
