Hints/Tips Difficulty 1.5? (spoiler) | Comment 1 of 3
I elected to solve the proverb only, but I did it by peeking at the alphametic and knowing that the numbers represented the letters SPONFDMUHR.  Yes, I think this is cheating, but I didn't have much time available.  In fact, I didn't even check the alphametic, so I hope the puzzle author was careful.

Solution:  ONE MAN'S FOOD IS ANOTHER MAN'S POISON

Not used in the proverb: U = 7
