Proverbs
 
 
 
A change is as good as a rest

A dog is a man's best friend

A fish always rots from the head down

A golden key can open any door

A good man is hard to find

A house is not a home

A leopard doesn't change its spots
 
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing

A little learning is a dangerous thing

A little of what you fancy does you good

A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for his client

A miss is as good as a mile

A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse

A person is known by the company he keeps

A picture paints a thousand words

A place for everything and everything in its place

A poor workman always blames his tools

A problem shared is a problem halved

A prophet is not recognized in his own land

A rising tide lifts all boats

A soft answer turneth away wrath

A swarm in May is worth a load of hay; a swarm in June is worth a silver spoon; but a swarm in July is not worth a fly

A volunteer is worth twenty pressed men

A woman's place is in the home

A woman's work is never done

Absolute power corrupts absolutely

Accidents will happen (in the best-regulated families).

Adversity makes strange bedfellows

All good things come to he who waits

All is grist that comes to the mill

All publicity is good publicity

All roads lead to Rome

All things come to those who wait

All things must pass

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

All you need is love

All's for the best in the best of all possible worlds

An Englishman's home is his castle

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Another day, another dollar

Any port in a storm

April showers bring forth May flowers

As thick as thieves

As you make your bed, so you must lie upon it

Ask a silly question and you'll get a silly answer

Attack is the best form of defence

 
Bad money drives out good

Beauty is only skin deep

Beggars should not be choosers

Behind every great man there's a great woman

Better safe than sorry

Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don't

Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool that to speak and remove all doubt

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts

Beware the Ides of March

Big fish eat little fish

 
Caesar's wife must be above suspicion

Carpe diem (Pluck the day; Seize the day)

Cheats never prosper

Cleanliness is next to godliness

Cold hands, warm heart

Count your blessings

Cowards may die many times before their death

Crime doesn't pay

Cut your coat to suit your cloth

 
Dead men tell no tales

Devil take the hindmost

Do as I say, not as I do

Do as you would be done by

Do unto others as you would have them do to you

Don't burn your bridges behind you

Don't cast your pearls before swine

Don't change horses in midstream

Don't cross the bridge till you come to it

Don't cut off your nose to spite your face

Don't keep a dog and bark yourself

Don't let the bastards grind you down

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth

Don't meet troubles half-way

Don't put the cart before the horse

Don't put new wine into old bottles

Don't rock the boat

Don't spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar

Don't throw pearls to swine

Don't teach your Grandma to suck eggs

Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater

Don't try to walk before you can crawl

Don't upset the apple-cart

Don't wash your dirty linen in public

Doubt is the beginning not the end of wisdom

 
Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise

East is east, and west is west

East, west, home's best

Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die

Enough is as good as a feast

Enough is enough

Even a worm will turn

Every Jack has his Jill

Every little helps

Every man for himself, and the Devil take the hindmost

Every stick has two ends

Everyone wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

Everything comes to him who waits

 
Failing to plan is planning to fail

Feed a cold and starve a fever

Fight fire with fire

Finders keepers, losers weepers

First impressions are the most lasting

Fish always stink from the head down

Fish and guests smell after three days

Flattery will get you nowhere

For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the man was lost

Fortune favours the brave

From the sublime to the ridiculous is only one step

 
Genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains

Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration

Give a dog a bad name and hang him

Give a man enough rope and he will hang himself

Good talk saves the food

 
Half a loaf is better than no bread

Handsome is as handsome does

Hard work never did anyone any harm

He who can does, he who cannot, teaches

He who fights and runs away, may live to fight another day

He who laughs last laughs longest

He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

Hindsight is always twenty-twenty

Horses for courses

 
If a job is worth doing it is worth doing well

If anything can go wrong, it will

If at first you don't succeed try, try and try again

If God had meant us to fly he'd have given us wings

If ifs and ands were pots and pans there'd be no work for tinkers

If life deals you lemons, make lemonade

If the cap fits, wear it

If the mountain won't come to Mohammed, then Mohammed must go to the mountain

If you can't be good, be careful

If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen

If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas

If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys

If you want a thing done well, do it yourself

In the kingdom of the blind the one eyed man is king

In the midst of life we are in death

Into every life a little rain must fall

It ain't over till the fat lady sings

It goes without saying

It is better to give than to receive

It is easy to be wise after the event

It takes a thief to catch a thief

It takes one to know one

It's all grist to the mill

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

It's better to travel hopefully than to arrive

It's never too late

It's no use locking the stable door after the horse has bolted

It's the early bird that catches the worm

It's the empty can that makes the most noise

It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease

 
Judge not, that ye be not judged

 
Keep your chin up

Keep your powder dry

 
Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone

Least said, soonest mended

Less is more

Let not the sun go down on your wrath

Let the dead bury the dead

Let the punishment fit the crime

Let well alone

Life begins at forty

Life is what you make it

Life's not all beer and skittles

Like father, like son

Little pitchers have big ears

Live for today for tomorrow never comes

Look before you leap

Love is blind

Love thy neighbour as thyself

 
Make love not war

Man does not live by bread alone

Manners maketh man

Many a little makes a mickle

Many a mickle makes a muckle

Many a true word is spoken in jest

March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb

March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers

Marriages are made in heaven

Marry in haste, repent at leisure

Might is right

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow

Moderation in all things

Money doesn't grow on trees

Money talks

Music has charms to soothe the savage breast

 
Nature abhors a vacuum

Needs must when the devil drives

Ne'er cast a clout till May be out

Never give a sucker an even break

Never go to bed on an argument

Never judge a book by its cover

Never let the sun go down on your anger

Never tell tales out of school

Nine tailors make a man

No names, no pack-drill

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent

No rest for the wicked

Nothing is certain but death and taxes

Nothing venture, nothing gain

 
Oil and water don't mix

Old soldiers never die, they just fade away

Once a thief, always a thief

One half of the world does not know how the other half lives

One hand washes the other

One might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb

One law for the rich and another for the poor

One volunteer is worth ten pressed men

One year's seeding makes seven years weeding

Only fools and horses work

Opportunity never knocks twice at any man's door

 
Parsley seed goes nine times to the Devil

Pearls of wisdom

Penny wise and pound foolish

Physician, heal thyself

Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely

Put your best foot forward

Rain before seven, fine before eleven

Red sky at night shepherd's delight; red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning

Rob Peter to pay Paul

 
See a pin and pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck; see a pin and let it lie, bad luck you'll have all day

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil

Seeing is believing

Share and share alike

Shrouds have no pockets

Silence is golden

Slow but sure

Softly, softly, catchee monkey

Speak as you find

Speak softly and carry a big stick

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me

Stupid is as stupid does

Success has many fathers, while failure is an orphan

 
Talk of the Devil, and he is bound to appear

That which does not kill us makes us stronger

The age of miracles is past

The apple never falls far from the tree

The best-laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley

The best defence is a good offence

The best things in life are free

The bottom line is the bottom line

The boy is father to the man

The bread always falls buttered side down

The cobbler always wears the worst shoes

The course of true love never did run smooth

The devil finds work for idle hands to do

The devil looks after his own

The end justifies the means

The exception which proves the rule

The female of the species is more deadly than the male

The fruit does not fall far from the tree

The good die young

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence

The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

The husband is always the last to know

The labourer is worthy of his hire

The law is an ass

The leopard does not change his spots

The longest journey starts with a single step

The more the merrier

The only good Indian is a dead Indian

The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance

The shoemaker's son always goes barefoot

The squeaking wheel gets the grease

There are more ways of killing a cat than choking it with cream

There but for the grace of God, go I

There's an exception to every rule

There's always more fish in the sea

There's honour among thieves

There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle

There's more than one way to skin a cat

There's no accounting for tastes

There's no smoke without fire

There's no such thing as bad publicity

There's none so blind as those who will not see

There's none so deaf as those who will not hear

There's nowt so queer as folk

There's one born every minute

They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind

Third time lucky

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it

Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones

Those who sleep with dogs will rise with fleas

Time and tide wait for no man

Time will tell

'tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all

To every thing there is a season

To the victor go the spoils

To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive

Truth will out   

Two blacks don't make a white

Two is company, but three's a crowd

Two wrongs don't make a right

 
Walnuts and pears you plant for your heirs

Waste not want not

What can't be cured must be endured

What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander

When the oak is before the ash, then you will only get a splash; when the ash is before the oak, then you may expect a soak

What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve over

When in Rome, do as the Romans do

Where there's muck there's brass

While there's life there's hope

Whom the Gods love die young

Why keep a dog and bark yourself?

Women and children first

Wonders will never cease

Work expands so as to fill the time available

Worrying never did anyone any good

 
You are never too old to learn

You are what you eat

You can have too much of a good thing

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink

You can't get blood out of a stone

You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear

You can't make bricks without straw

You can't run with the hare and hunt with the hounds

You can't teach an old dog new tricks

You can't win them all

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar

Youth is wasted on the young


Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for its living,
And a child that's born on the Sabbath day
Is fair and wise and good and gay.
