A bosom friend afar brings a distant land near.
A fall into the pit, a gain in your wit.
Business is business.
There is no royal road to learning.
Variety is the spice of life.
Custom makes all things easy.
All rivers run into the sea.
The shortest way to do many things is to only one thing at a time.
Desire has no rest.
Sharp tools make good work.
Do one thing at a time, and do well.
Wasting time is robbing oneself.
All time is no time when it is past.
Death comes to all, but great achievements raise a monument which shall endure until the sun grows old.
Life is painting a picture, not doing a sum.
