All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

You cannot work all of the time. You have to relax as well.

Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes

Sometimes people criticize another person. But it is not fair to criticize someone else if you have not had the same experiences.

Don’t put the cart before the horse

Pay attention to what is the most important. Do not let things that are not as important take up all of your time and attention.

Every cloud has a silver lining
