  1. Soft words often serve in a hard argument.
    Discretion is the better part of valour.
    Always look twice before you leap.
    Practise makes perfect.
    Never put new wine into old bottles.
    A good word never broke a man's mouth.
    The wise man changes his mind but the fool never.
    Laugh and the world laughs with you.
    Those who do the most work are frequently the most silent.
    Once bitten twice shy.
    A burned child dreads the fire.

  2. It is never too late to mend.
    Make hay while the sun shines.
    A stitch in time saves nine.
    Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
    A rolling stone gathers no moss.
    When it rains it pours.
    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
    It is two late to save when all is spent.
    When your hand is in a dogs mouth draw it
