Women could compress a great deal into one look.
Thieves are always the most careful of their purses.
The sweetness of victory and the bitterness of defeat are alike a knife of dreams.[From Fog and Steel by Madoc Comadrin]
Small hopes can grow surprising fruit.
In any trade, you needed to make the other fellow think he was getting something extra.
Beware the fox that makes the ravens fly.
A beautiful battle is one you don’t have to fight.
