Proverbs from France
Beauty, unaccompanied by virtue, is as a flower without perfume.
God visits us often, but most of the time we are not home.
Hope is the dream of a soul awake.
He that spends more than he is worth spins a rope for his own neck.
If you have a good case, try to compromise; if you have a bad one, take it to court.
