    A watched kettle never boils.

    A watched kettle never boils.
    Too many cooks spoil the broth.
    A stitch in time saves nine.
    By degrees as the lawers go to Heaven.
    Good goods in small parcels.
    You never miss the water till the well goes dry.
    Look before you leap.
    The longest way round is the shortest way home.
    As long as the pitcher goes to the well it will be broken in the end.
    For want of one nail the shoe was lost.
    Brevity is the soul of business.
    Loosing the sheep for the half-penny worth of tar.
    Gentleness proves best in the end.
    You must creep before you walk.
    Everything comes to those who wait.
    Long churning makes bad butter.
    Necessity is the mother of invention.
