Cruelty, Cry, Cunning and Custom : Proverbs
Key-Words Based Proverbs
Cruelty is the strength of the Wicked.
Malice hurts itself most.
Cruelty deserves no mercy.
He that hurts another hurts himself.
He threatens many than hurts any.
Don't cry over spilt milk.
Cry all the way to the bank.
To cry with one eye and laugh with the other.
Too much cunning undoes.
A krafty knave needs no broker.
The fox preys farthest from his home.
If you deal with a fox, think of his tricks.
Ancient custom has the force of law.
Custom is the second nature.
With custom we live well, but law undo us.
It is custom more honored in the breach than the observance.
