A person who drinks nothing but water will never be drunk.
A green Christmas is a fat graveyard
Far off hills look green.
A windy day is not a day for thatching.
Better late than never.
United we stand, divided we fall.
A wise man carried his coat.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
If you listen to the sound of the river you will catch a fish.
You should not throw out the dirty water until you bring in the clean water first.
Live horse and you will get oats.
You can take a horse to the water but you cannot make him drink.
Manys a slip between the cup and the lip.

It is easier going to the town than it is coming back.
