The darkest clouds have silver lining.
You never miss the water until the well goes dry.
Listeners never heard good of them-selves.
A constant drop wears a stone.Necessity is the mother of invention.
Willful waste makes woeful want.
A good beginning is half the work.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating of it.
