Like a thorn branch in the hand of a drunk is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
A master can make anything, but hiring a fool is like hiring some passer-by.
Just as a dog returns to his vomit, a fool repeats his folly.
Do you see someone who thinks himself wise? There is more hope for a fool than for him!
The lazy person says, "There's a lion in the streets! A lion is roaming loose out there!"
The door turns on its hinges, and the lazy man on his bed.
The lazy person buries his hand in the dish but is too tired to return it to his mouth.
A lazy man is wiser in his own view than seven who can answer with sense.
Like someone who grabs a dog by the ears is a passer-by who mixes in a fight not his own.
Like a madman shooting deadly arrows and firebrands
is one who deceives another, then says, "It was just a joke."
