The sight of you is good for sore eyes.
He pays him back with his own coin.
Liars ought to have good memories.
She watches him as a cat watches a mouse.
It is as good to be out of the world as to be out of the fashion.
Better late than never.
Saying and doing are two things.
The longest way round is the shortest way home.
Put a beggar on horseback and he will out ride the devil.
He who slings mud is losing ground.
There are none so blind that they wont see.
Not dead but gone before.
Possession is eleven points of the law.
Fools rush in where angles fear to tread.
