A stitch in time saves nine.
Plough deep while sluggards sleep you will have corn to sell and keep.
Dont sell your hen on a wet day
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.
An old dog cannot be taught.
A bird in the hand is worth two in a bush.
A child who is burnt dreads the fire.
If the cucoo sings on a bare thorn you may sell your cow and buy corn.
Long churning makes bad butter.
If a fish could hear as well as see no fisherman might ever be.
It is not the big stones alone that build the castle.
