The end justifies the means.
The end makes all equal.
The eye is bigger than the belly.
The farthest way about is the nearest way home.
The finest diamond must be cut.
The fire is the test of gold， adversity of strong man.
The first step is the only difficulty.
The fox knew too much， that's how he lost his tail.
The fox preys farthest from home.
The frog in the well knows nothing of the great ocean.
The grass is greener on the other side.
The greatest talkers are always least doers.
The higher up， the greater the fall.
The leopard cannot change its spots.
The more noble， the more humble.
The more wit， the less courage.
The outsider sees the most of the game.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
The pot calls the kettle black.
There are spots in the sun.
There are two sides to every question.
There is a skeleton in the cupboard.
There is kindness to be found everywhere.
There is no general rule without some exception.
There is no medicine against death.
There is no place like home.
There is no royal road to learning.
The style is the man.
The tongue is not steel， yet it cuts.
The water that bears the boat is the same that swallows it up.
The wise man knows he knows nothing， the fool thinks he knows all.
The wolf has a winning game when the shepherds quarrel.
The world is a ladder for some to go up and others to go down.
The world is but a little place， after all.
Think twice before you do.
Things at the worst will mend.
Time and tide wait for no man.
Time cures all things.
Time is money.
Time lost cannot be won again.
Time past cannot be called back again.
Time tries all.
Tit for tat is fair play.
To err is human.
To know everything is to know nothing.
To know oneself is true progress.
Tomorrow never comes.
Too much familiarity breeds contempt.
Too much knowledge makes the head bald.
