A stitch in time saves nine.
A windy day is not the day for thatching.
A long churning makes bad butter.
A little tastes sweet.
As cute as a fox.
A new brush sweeps clean.
A chip of the same block.
An excuse is nearer to a woman than her apron.
A penny for your thought.
A rolling stone gathers no moss but it gets a great shine.
After a storm comes a calm.
A good beginning is half the work.
A whistling woman and a crowing hen, there cannot be luck in the house they are in.
A shut mouth catches no flies.
A half loaf is better than no bread.
As wicket as a weasel.
A borrowed horse has hard hooves.
Better late than never.
Blood is thicker than water.
Born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
Cows in Connaught have long horns.
Closing the door after the robbery.
