Slow as molasses in January.
A snail’s pace.
We are not so much concerned if you are slow as when you come to a halt.
A slave has no choice.
The tyrant is only the slave turned inside out.
They are not free who drag their chains after them.
Slander slays three persons: the speaker, the spoken to, and the spoken of.
A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.
The truth is no slander.
Slander cannot destroy an honest man – when the flood recedes the rock is there.
