- Local Proverbs
The hills look green that are far away.
The new broom sweeps the floor best.
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
A watch pot never boils.
A stitch in time saves nine.
Never throw out the old water until you have the fresh water in.
Every dog looks brave in his own door.
One hour in the morning is better that two in the evening.
Birds of a feather flock together.
A bird in your hand is worth two in a bush.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
