To know people's hearts, pay more attention to what they do than what

event or food at a picnic. The idea is that no matter what your status, if you want some
of what is being given away or sold, you must present yourself in person and in good time.

hard enough to make your muscles hurt, the exercise is not doing you much good.

he or she may take advantage of you.

Sometimes patience is better than initiative.
90---------There is many a slip between the cup and the lip

one intends to get all the drink into the mouth, but this does not always happen.
The plan is good but it can still fail.
91---------Boys will be boys
People will act according to their nature, including some mischief.
This is sometimes used to describe irresponsible but not too seriously wrong
behavior by men. In other words, grown men will sometimes act like little boys.
92-------One bad apple can spoil the whole barrel
Do not associate with bad people. They may spoil you as a rotting apple
spoils the apples next to it in the barrel.
93---------Better the devil you know than the devil you don't
People are generally not trustworthy. It is therefore better to deal with a familiar
person or situation than an unknown one. That way you know what to watch out
for and you can protect yourself better.

Two people are more likely to succeed than one working or thinking alone.
It is better to consult than to act alone.

One should admire a person, particularly a woman, for her deep, inner character and not simply
for her superficial beauty.
