The early bird gets the worm. / Good things come to those who wait.
Look before you leap. / He who hesitates is lost.
Two heads are better than one. / If you want something done right, do ityourself.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. / Better safe than sorry.
Out of sight, out of mind. / Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
You canʼt tell a book by its cover. / The clothes make the man.
Many hands make light work. / Too many cooks spoil the broth.
You canʼt teach an old dog new tricks. / Itʼs never too late tolearn.
Never sweat the small stuff. / God is in the details.
If at first you donʼt succeed, try, try again. / Donʼt beat yourhead against a brick wall.
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. / Donʼt cross thebridge until you come to it.
More haste less speed. / Time waits for no man.
A word to the wise is sufficient. / Talk is cheap.
Donʼt look a gift horse in the mouth. / Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
Hitch your wagon to a star. / Donʼt bite off more than you can chew.
The squeaking wheel gets the grease. / Silence is golden.
Birds of a feather flock together. / Opposites attract.
The pen is mightier than the sword. / Actions speak louder than words.
