Life is like a box of chocolates

...you'll never know what you're gonna get :)

List of proverbs for the 2nd Test.

A bad workman always blames his tools
A bird in hand is worth two in the bush
A burnt child dreads fire
A fool and his money are soon parted
A great talker is a great liar
A hungry man is an angry man
A job worth doing is a job worth doing well
A leopard cannot change its spots
A man is as old as he feels
A miss is as good as a mile
A penny saved is a penny gained
A rolling stone gathers no moss
A stitch in time saves nine
Actions speak louder than words
All that glitters is not gold
An idle brain is the devil's workshop
An ounce of discretion is worth a pound of wit
An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure
Any time means no time
As you make your bed so must you lie on it
As you sow, so you shall reap
Between the devil and the deep sea
Birds of a feather flock together
Bite off more than one can chew
Children should be seen and not heard
Curiosity killed the cat
Cut your coat according to your cloth
Dead men tell no lies
Discretion is the better part of valor
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.
Don't put all your eggs in one basket
Every cloud has a silver lining
Every dog has its day
Experience is the best teacher
Faint heart never won fair lady
Fire is a good servant but a bad master
First come, first served
Fling/throw mud at someone
Fortune knocks once at every man's door
Great haste makes great waste
Great talkers are little doers
Habit is second nature
Half a loaf is better than none
Have an old head on young shoulders
Have eyes in the back of one's head
If it's not one thing it's another
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride
If you can't lick them, join them
It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good
It's never too late to mend
Jack of all trades and master of none
Jump from the frying pan into the fire
Keep the wolf from the door
Let bygones by bygones
Let not the pot call the kettle black
Look at the bright side
Losers weepers, finders keepers
Make hay while the sun shines
Many hands make light work
Money is the root of all evil
One man's meat is another man's poison
Opportunity only knocks once
Promises are like pie crust
Put a quart into a pint pot
Rome was not built in a day
Someone's bark is worse than his bite
Speech is silver, silence is golden
Still waters run deep
The blind leading the blind
The longest day must have an end
The mountain labors and brings forth a mouse
The rain falls on the just and the unjust alike
The sins of the fathers will be visited upon the children
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
There are two sides to every question
There's more than one way to skin a cat
Too many cooks spoil the broth
Truth is stranger than fiction
Two heads are better than one
Two wrongs do not make a right
When in Rome do as the Romans do
Where there's a will there's a way
