Health is not valued till sickness comes.
Quote by Thomas Fuller
One that would have the fruit must climb the tree.

Better a tooth out than always aching.
Better be alone than in bad company.
Learning hath gained most by those books by which the printers have lost.
'Tis skill, not strength, that governs a ship.

You might as well praise a man for not robbing a bank.
