Well done is better than well said.

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have been kind to you.

Some folks don't exaggerate, they just remember big.

Chances are good that during your life you've run across some good advice. And it's very likely that much of it originated with an Amish proverb. Through firsthand research and personal relationships, Suzanne Woods Fisher has collected more than 400 proverbs that uncover the rich heritage, folklore, faith, values, history, and essence of the Plain People. These proverbs serve as teaching tools and maxims for practical living--but they're not just for the Amish. They're for anyone who seeks God's wisdom and truth for everyday circumstances.

Ranging from the simple to the profound, from the serious to the humorous, these sayings will stick with you through life's joys and sorrows.
