Very very good are all your proverbs, I was laughing loudly when I read your  variant about losing of the head,  very nice  are all of them,  so I am laughing yet to not waste the day. Good! Thanks!

" If two poeple say you're drunk go to bed " in Sudan we have a similar proverb it's "If two people say you'd lost your head look for it "  
more Sudanese proverbs :
"If you can walk , you can dance ; if you can talk ,you can sing ."
"A big chair can't make a big king ."
"It is sad when an elephant dies but a whole can feed on it ."
"Our wasted days are the days we never laugh ."
"If  you think you are too small to make a difference try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito . "

"Don't argue with a fool, he has a rested mind", it's really funny (and true) proverb, i like it. 
Like me too "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions".   And that what you said " Don't measure others with your own hand", in Spain we said " The thief thinks that everyone is like him".

I had forgotten to say that  all the proverbs I posted are from Romanian only. 

one more : 

"He went as an ox and came back as a cow."  ( it's taken from a Romanian book by Ion Creanga called  "Remembrance from my childhood " - 1880)
  • Meaning: Used for a person that spends a lot of time and money to study and gains nothing. (in Romanian, ox/cow is used for a person who lacks judgement, a fool)
  • Origin: Wealthy romanians used to send their spoiled kids to Paris to study, but most of them came back unchanged or worse.
