  1. A rolling stone gathers no moss.
    The early bird catches the worm.
    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
    Kill two birds with the one stone.
    Better late than never.
    Early to bed and early to rise.
    Rise with the lark and with him to bed.
    All's well that ends well.
    Make hay while the sun shines.
    Give you all the birds of the air if you will catch them yourself.
    A good heart goes a long way.
    Never trouble trouble till it troubles you.
    A stitch in time saves nine.
    You cannot whistle and chew meal.
    You cannot whistle without the upper lip
    You cannot take feathers off a frog.
    You cannot take breeches off a highlander
    The miller's dog is always fat.
    You cannot take blood out of a stone.
    You cannot take wool off a goat.
