A rolling stones gathers no moss.
You cannot make a silk purse out of a pig's ear,.

You don't expect anything from an ass but a kick.
[?] words butter no parsnips.
Never leave a thing off till to-morrow what you can do today.
Evil to him who evil thinks.
After a storm there comes a calm.
A little pot is soon hot.
Empty vessels make most sound.
Make hay when there is sun shine.
Satan finds mischief for idle hands to do.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.
When the cats away the mice can play.
