(continued from previous page)
the world some of the time, but you cannot fool all the world all the time.
A slip of the tongue is no fault of the mind.
God’s help is nearer than the door.
Many a good tree grew on shallow ground.
Though long the fox runs he is caught at last.
The new broom sweeps clean.
As is the school-master so will be the school children.
A poor man lives honestly.
It is easier to say a thing than to do it.
Do not put all your eggs in one basket.
A blind man is no judge of colours.
