Grandma Always Said:
A bird in hand is worth two in a bush.
A friend in need is a friend indeed.
A Jack of all trades is a master of none.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
A willful waste will be a woeful want.
Beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes to the bone.
Count your blessings.
Cross that bridge when you get to it.
Don't bite off more than you can chew
Don't change horses in the middle of the stream.
Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.
Don't dig up old bones.
Don't go looking for trouble.
Don't jump to conclusions.
Don't ride a good horse to death.
Early to bed and early to rise makes you healthy wealthy and wise.
Gather your flowers while you can.
Haste makes waste.
Hard work never hurt anyone.
Idle hands are the devil's workshop.
If at first you don't succeed try again.
If wishes were horses, beggers would ride.
It ain't what you want that does you good it's what you get.
Let sleeping dogs lay.
Look before you leap.
Make hay while the sun's shining.
No good ever come from gossip.
One lie leads to another.
Pretty is as pretty does.
Save for a rainy day.
Small pictures have big ears.
Still waters run deep.
That's water under the bridge
The early bird always gets the worm.
There's no need to cry over spilt milk.
There's two bad paymasters, one that pays in advance, and one that never pays.
Two wrongs don't make a right.
Use a little horse sense.
Waste not want not.
Where there's a will there's a way.
Where there's smoke there's fire
You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
You can't have your cake and eat it too.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks
You reap what you sow.
