The Church is near, but the way is icy; the tavern is far, but I will walk carefully. –Ukranian Proverb

(This can apply to so many people I know.)

What breaks in a moment may take years to mend. –Sweedish Proverb

(SO TRUE!!!)

Speak the truth, but leave immediately after. –Slovenian Prvoerb

Better be ill spoken of by one before all than by all before one. –Scottish Proverb
