The early bird catches the worm.
The sea hath fish for every man.
Betwixt the stirrup and the ground Mercy I asked, mercy I found.
You cannot teach an old dog new tricks
Better a bad excuse, than none at all.
Better halfe a loafe than no bread.
An inch in a miss is as good as an ell.
It is hard to teach an old dog tricks.
All the proof of a pudding is in the eating.
God sendeth cold after clothes.
He that mischief hatcheth, mischief catcheth.
My friend, judge not me,
Thou seest I judge not thee;
Betwixt the stirrop and the ground,
Mercy I askt, mercy I found.
Wisdom is at all times the least burdensome traveling pack.
