It's a lang loanin that has nae turnin.
Weel kens the moose that the cat's oot o the hoose.
Maist things hae a small beginnin.
He that eats but ae dish seldom needs the doctor.
Gie yer tongue mair holidays than your heid.
The siller penny slays mair souls than the nakit sword slays bodies.
Anail a' Ghàidheil -- air a' mhullach.
(The Gael's breathing place -- on the summit.)
