Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Two heads are better than one.
A bird in the hand is worth two in a bush.
Half a loaf is better than no bread.
Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well.
Hunger is the best sauce.
You can lead a horse to a pool but you cannot make him drink.
Penny wise, pound foolish.
Save the pence and the pounds will take care of themselves.
He who grasps at too much often loses all.
Make hay while the sun shines.
You cannot make a race gorse out of an ass.
