My manumit no manumit
Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. While there's life, there's hope. The opposite form also exists, Clothes don't make the man. If you can't join them, beat them. Never, Never... allow anyone to persuade you to suspend your common sense.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. It never rains, but it pours.
This may be attributed to Niccolo Machiavelli. Familiarity breeds contempt. If wishes were horses, pigs would fly. No money, no justice. At least in Louisianiraq.
Meaning: Admit it when there is some good in an adversary. People who live in glass houses have to answer the door. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. --Mahatma Gandhi Judge not, lest ye be judged. A lie can be halfway around the world before the truth gets its boots on. The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese
