One in the hand is worth two in the bush.
If you have eggs set it is no use counting how many birds you will have, until they are hatched.
He cut the rod to whip himself.
A stitch in time saves nine.
If you don't sow in Spring you won't reap in Autumn.
Many hands make light work.
It is a long road that has no turns
Some easy, go easy, God send Saturday
The early bird catches the worm.
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
It is not easy cutting hair off a goat.
There is always a wind to dry the priest's shirt.
First frce [?] first guilty.
