A rolling stone gathers no moss.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
The cows in Connaught have long horns.
The far away hills are green.
A penny for your thoughts.
A burned child dreads the fire.
Look before you leap.
Think twice before you speak once.
A penny saved is a penny gained.
Self praise in no recommendation.
Make new friends but keep the old ones, one is silver and the other is gold.
It is never too late to learn.
He who laughs last laughs best.
It is a cure for sore eyes to see you.
A friend in need is a friend indeed.
It is a poor house cannot support one lady.
There is no use crying over spilt milk.
