The Pope and a peasant know more than the Pope alone.

Once a word has been uttered it belongs to those who hear it.

Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail.

Better an apple pie than apple blossom.

It’s better to drink and feel sick than not to drink and feel bad.

Common grief is lighter to bear.

Even the grave of the Lord has a paid guard.

Winter finds out what summer lays up.

When three wise men say you are an ass, bray.
