Improved Proverbs by Carolyn Wells

A living gale is better than a dead calm.
A church fair exchange is often robbery.
A man is known by the bank-account he keeps.
Only a fool never minds his change.
Make love while the moon shines.
It’s a wise child who knows less than his own father.
A little loving is a dangerous thing.
The love of money is the root of all pessimism.
Of two weevils, choose the smaller.
Seize Time by the love-lock.
None but the brave go to a fair.
