Latin Proverbs
  As much love, so much mind, or heart.  1
  Bis dat qui cito dat—He gives twice who gives quickly.  2
  Bonus dux bonum reddit militem—The good general makes good soldiers.  3
  Cutis vulpina consuenda est cum cute leonis—The fox’s skin must be sewed to that of the lion.  4
  De calceo sollicitus, at pedem nihil curans—Anxious about the shoe, but careless about the foot.  5
  Desunt inopiæ multa, avaritiæ omnia—Poverty is in want of many things, avarice of everything.  6
  Dies adimit ægritudinem—Time cures our griefs.  7
  Difficilia quæ pulchra—The really good is of difficult attainment.  8
  Where God gives, envy harms not; and where he gives not, no labour avails.  9
