These are proverbs I know myself:-
"A stitch in time saves nine".
"Cleanliness is next to Godliness".
"Think of going out before you enter".

These are the ones I got at home.
"There is a mystery to the meanest trade".
"Don't throw snow-balls with razor - blades in them".
"Self trust is the essence of heroism".
"Anxiety is the poison of life".
""Earn money before you spend it".
"Better go to bed supperless than rise in debt".
"If you grab too much you lose all".
"Do as you would be done by".
