  1. (continued from previous page)
    (14) Two many cooks spoil the broth. (15) The younger the chicken the sweeter the picking. (16) Never sell your hen on a rainy day. (17) One man could take a horse to water but one hundred could not make him drink it. (18) You will never miss the water until the well runs dry. (19) Half an hour too soon is better than half a minute too late. (20) Time or tide wait for nobody. (21) Plough deep while sluggards sleep and you shall have corn to sell and to keep. (22) A work begun is half done. (23) Two heads are better than one. (24) The eye of a master can do more work than both his hands.
