A sound stick is always worth money.
Too many cooks spoil the broth
A shoe with a lace is worth ten without laces.
A bird in your hand is worth two in the bush.
A hawk is a bird of prey.
To hoist is to pull up.
Anything is better than a stroke of a stick.
To strike the window and break to glass.
On thin stick is worth ten thick one's for some purposes
To kick the bucket and spill the milk
To sing while milking quietens the cow.
To beat the dog and break the stick.
A sleep early in the night is worth all the rest of the night's sleep.
A goose on the table is worth two in the field.
One good cow is worth two bad one's.
One big dog is worth two small ones.
