    Birds of a feather flock together...

    Birds of a feather flock together.
    Too many cooks spoil the broth.
    Live horse and you’ll get grass.
    Many hands make light work.
    The devil’s children the devils luck.
    A watched pot never boils.
    Curiosity killed the cat.
    A shut mouth catches no flies.
    A stitch in time saves nine.
    A penny saved is a penny got.
    The hills are greener far away.
    Little said is easily mended.
    You cannot paint the lily white.
    A half a loaf is better than no bread.
    Never put off til tomorrow what you can today.
    Always going to the meal tub and never putting in.
    You may bring a horse to the well but you cannot make him drink.
    Hear and see but say nothing.
    It is a long road that has no end.
    A friend in need is a friend indeed.
    You can’t make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
    Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
