Make hay while the sun shines
All is not gold that glitters
Where there is a will there is a way
A good woman is better than a fortune
Child is father to man.
Every cloud has a silver lining
A friend in need is a friend in need.
A burned child dreads the fire
Strike the iron while it is hot.
Well begun is half done.
A little learning is a dangerous thing.
Fore warmed is forearmed
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Trifle makes perfection but perfection is no trifle
Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
Nothing succeeds like success.
Easy got easy gone
Everything comes to him who waits
The darkest hour is before the dawn.
The future is veiled from us in mercy that we may not despair.
