Here’s some more ( a little on the hardboiled side ) …
Open your mouth and your wallet cautiously.
The best theories often make the worst practices.
Misfortunes always come in through the door left open for them.
Part of your plan to one , part to another , the whole to none.
When skating on thin ice , skate fast.
When you are angry , close your mouth - and open your eyes.
All who snore are not sleeping.
Let your adverary talk , When he has finished , let him talk some more.
If you can’t win , make the price of your adversaries victory exorbitant.
What goes around comes around – but never in time.
Treat the stranger as you would a friend ; trust him as you would a stranger.
If others fold every time you play a good hand , you play to their eyes.
If you don’t spot the mark in your first half hour at the table , you’re it.
You can’t put a good edge on bad steel.
If you must lie , be brief.
Establish priorities: If you are up to your a*s in alligators , the first thing to do is drain the swamp.
To finish sooner , take your time.
Occasionally suffer fools; you may learn something of value. But never argue with them.
Some defeats are better than victories; unfortunately , some victories are worse than defeats.
When you must cut , persude the victim you are a surgeon.
The wrong choice often seems the more reasonable.
The fish is killed by it’s open mouth.
