Can you contribute a famous french proverb that you like most? (and maybe translate it as well?)

If this is a duplicate question, can you please guide me to a place where such an enumeration exists?

Je vous remercie!


This site has a lot of proverbs, categorized and with explanations. Actually, way more proverbs than the average person knows. I like this one, absolutely not famous:

Après rastel n'a métier fourche.

A good classic one, also on the site Frank cited:

Nulle rose sans épine.
