I found myself with all of these half-baked ideas, and I realized that two halves make a whole, so I put them all together! And now, for your reading pleasure, are the great proverbs of wit and wisdom that never existed... until now!
Better a late bird than an early worm.
If it ain't broke, don't sweep it under the rug.
One man's smoke is another man's fire.
The early bird catches the cold.
Pen wise, sword foolish.
You can hold your horses, but you can't make them drink.
Those who live by the sword die by the pen.
A mouse by any other name still wants a cookie!
A fool and his cookie are soon parted.
If you can't beat 'em, get out of the kitchen.
Too many cooks can dish it out, but can't take it.
Don't count your chickens until the fat lady sings.
Where there's honey, there's vinegar.
A stitch in time is a penny earned.
Up a tree without a paddle.
What goes up a creek must come down.
Don't sweep the spilt milk under the rug!
Call a molehill a molehill.
Ruffle a few feathers the wrong way.
Many hands make the cookie crumble.
Don't judge a horse by it's saddle.
Look before you judge a book by it's cover.
