    For age and want save while you may no morning's son lasts a whole day.

    For age and want save while you may no morning's son lasts a whole day.
    The early bird has the early worm.
    Seeing is believing and feeling is the naked truth.
    It is as good to be out of the world as out of fashion.
    not dead, but gone before.
    Let a beggar on horse-back and he'll outride the devil.
    The longest way around is the shortest way home.
    All's well that ends well.
    Live horse and you'll get grass.
    Ever so little is better than none.
    The longer you live the more you learn.
    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
    A shut mouth catches no flies.
    It's a cure for sore eyes to see you.
    A nod is as good as wink to a blind horse
    A half-loaf is better than no bread.
    She pays him in his own coins.
    Liars ought to have a good memory.
    He who slings mud is loosing ground.
    Wilful waste is woeful want.
    You must creep before you walk.
    Ill got ill gone
    Better late than never.
    A burned stick is easy kindled
    It never rains but it pours
