Anger, Anticipation, Appearance : Proverbs
Key-Words Based Proverbs
Anger punishes itself.
Anger is to be avoided in inflicting punishments.
Be swift to hear, slower to speak, still slower to wrath.
When angry, count ten, when very angry, a hundred.
Anger is short madness.
Two things a man should never be angry at, what he can help and what he cannot help.
The angry man always thinks he can do more than he can.
As fire is kindled by bellows, so is anger by words.
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.
Nothing is certain but the unforeseen.
He laughs best who laughs last.
Don't bargain for fish which are still in the water.
Fear of death is worse than death itself.
Do no triumph before victory.
Prospect is often better than possession.
Things are not always what they seem.
A clean glove often hides a dirty hand.
A fair face may hide a foul heart.
Appearances are deceitful.
The golden covering does not make the ass a horse.
What you see is what you get.
Under a shabby cloak may be a smart thinker.
All are not saints who go to church.
You can't tell a book by its cover.
The cowl does not make the monk.
Still waters run deep.
Under the thorn grow the roses.
There are black sheep in every flock.
