(continued from previous page)

God gives food but he dosn't throw it into the nest.
Necessity is the mother of invention.

Water is a good drink when taken in good spirits.
Fools make feasts and wise men eat them.
A bird in the had is worth two in the bush.

Much wants more.
It's a long land that has no turning.
The darkest hour is that before the dawn.
It is easier to see the mote in another person's eye than the beam in your own eye.
It's better to be a coward for five minutes than a dead man for the rest of your life.
Little said is easy mended.
Make hay while the sun shines.
It is not the most sensible lady that is the most beautiful.
He is the richest who wants least.
A closed mouth catches no flies.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
Honest is the best policy.
Beggars can't be choosers.
