A stich in time saves nine.

A stick is a peacemaker.

A stick is easy found to beat a dog.

A stiehlt unserm Herrgott a Tag ob.
Der Tagedieb.

A stieht em salber am Lichte.

A still tongue makes a wise head.

A stink is still worse for the stirring.

A stirring dwarf we do allowance give before a sleeping giant.
Shakespeare

A stisst nei (stößt hinein) wie a Flêscher.
Ist dort auf einen Posaunenbläser angewandt.

A stitch in time saves nine.

A Stoch (Stich) in der siebten Ripp.
Jüdisch-deutsch
Eine schwere Beleidigung, ein nachhaltiger Schaden, der wehe tut.

A Stoch in Schabbes herein.
Jüdisch-deutsch
Einen Stich in den Sabbat machen.
Irgendeine Arbeit bei bereits begonnenem Sonnabend verrichten. Vom Schneider entlehnt, der eine Arbeit vor Anbruch des Sabbats fertig machen will, und, wenn ihm dies nicht gelingt, einen Stich in den Sabbat macht.

A Stockport chaise:
two women riding sideways.

A stoic of the woods, - a man without a tear.
Campbell

A stolta domanda, nessuna risposta.

A stomach that is seldom empty despises common food.
Horace

A stone in a well is not lost.
George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

A stone is better than a useless man.

A stone's weight is felt where it's fallen.

A stony adversary, an inhuman wretch,
Uncapable of pity, void and empty
From any dram of mercy.
Shakespeare: M. of Venice, Act iv., Sc. 1.

A storm-cloud lurid with lightning,
And a cry of lamentation,
Repeated and again repeated,
Deep and loud
As the reverberation
Of cloud answering unto cloud,
Swells and rolls away in the distance,
As if the sheeted
Lightning retreated,
Baffled and thwarted by the wind's resistance.
Longfellow

A story and a ball of snow
Gather substance as they go.

A story never loses by carrying.

A story should, to please, at least seem true,
Be apropos, well told, concise, and new:
And whenso'er it deviates from these rules,
The wise will sleep, and leave applause to fools.
Stillingfleet

A story without a moral is like a meal without a sweet dish.
Yiddish] A mayse on a moshl iz vi a moltsayt on a tsimes.

A story without an author is not worth listening to.

A story, in which native humor reigns,
Is often useful, always entertains;
A graver fact enlisted on your side
May furnish illustration, well applied;
But sedentary weavers of long tales
Give me the fidgets, and my patience fails.
'Tis the most asinine employ on earth,
To hear them tell of parentage and birth,
And echo conversations dull and dry,
Embellish'd with, - He said, - and, So said I.
Cowper

A stout heart crushes ill luck.

A stout heart may be ruined in fortune but not in spirit.
Victor Hugo

A straight stick seems/is crooked in the water.

A 'strange coincidence,' to use a phrase
By which such things are settled nowadays.
BYRON: Don Juan, Canto vi., St. 78.

A strange fool is laughable, but your own fool is shameful.
Yiddish] A fremder nar iz a gelekhter, an eygener a shande.

A strange volume of real life in the daily packet of the postman. Eternal love and instant payment!
Douglas Jerrold

A stranger doesn't know a bad road.
Africa

A stranger who is kind is a kinsman; an unkind kinsman is a stranger.
Hitopadesa.

A stranger, if just, is not only to be preferred before a countryman, but a kinsman.
Pythagoras

A strawberry preacher.

A stray hair, by its continued irritation, may give more annoyance than a smart blow.
Lowell

A strenuous soul hates cheap success. It is the ardor of the assailant that makes the vigor of the defendant.
Emerson

A strenuous soul hates cheap success.
Fielding

A stroke at every tree, without felling any.

A strong conceit is rich; so most men deem:
If not to be, 'tis comfort yet to seem.
Marston

A strong hand can use any weapon.

A strong man doesn't provoke arguments.
Africa

A strong nor'wester's blowing, Bill!
Hark! don't yet hear it roar now?
Lord help 'em, how I pities them
Unhappy folks on shore now!
William Pitt

A strutting player, - whose conceit
Lies in his hamstring, and doth think it rich
To hear the wooden dialogue and sound
'Twixt his stretched footing and the scaffoldage.
Shakespeare: Troil. and Cress., Act i., Sc. 3.

A stubborn mind conduces as little to wisdom or even to knowledge as a stubborn temper to happiness.
Southey

A stumble may prevent a fall.

A sturdy, hardened sinner shall advance to the utmost pitch of impiety, with less reluctance than he took the first step while his conscience was yet vigilant and tender.
Atterbury

A su amigo, el gato siempre le deja señalado.
