You get what you wish for.
A stitch in time saves nine.
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
And don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
Look before you leap.
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
Silence is golden.
Give an inch, they’ll take a mile.
Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.
Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.
And don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Now that’s a horse of a different color.
Never bite the hand that feeds you.
Every little bit helps.
You have to walk before you can run.
Haste makes waste.
Penny wise, pound foolish.
Honey catches more flies than vinegar.
Kill ’em with kindness.
Her mouth goes like the back end of a goose.
Give ’em a whole lotta leavin’ alone.
What goes around comes around.
There’s other fish in the sea.
Measure twice, cut once.
Cold hands, warm heart.
Never say never.
You get what you pay for.
There’s no time like the present.
It takes two to tango.
Easier said than done.
Do as I say, not as I do.
You can bet your bottom dollar.
What goes up must come down.
Rome wasn’t built in a day.
The early bird gets the worm.
Money doesn’t grow on trees.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Give me a break.
It takes one to know one.
Patience is a virtue.
Pick yourself up by your bootstraps.
Let’s not, and say we did.
Live and learn.
As you sow, so shall you reap.
Don’t believe everything you hear.
Go with the flow.
It’s only make-believe.
