  1. Dont count your chickens before they are hatched
    A persons mouth often broke his nose
    Every one has his own story
    A rainbow in the morning is Shepherds warning
    A rainbow in the evening is a Shepherds delight
    He's a poor priest who hasn't a clerk
    is often glad to accept something inferior: "When all fruit fails, welcome haws"
    When a person shows no sign of gratitude for a good turn, as if it passed completely from his memory, people say, "Eaten bread is soon forgotten."
    A person is sent upon some dangerous mission, as when the persons he is going to are his deadly enemies, that is "Sending the goose on a message to the fox's den."
