Old Proverbs with New Pictures

Here is what we have:

A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush

A Man of Straw

Be it Ever So Humble, There's No Place Like Home

Big Head, Little Wit

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Bought Wit is Best

Coming Events

Desires are Nourished by Delays

Every Couple is Not a Pair

Extremes Meet

For that though Canst Do Thyself Rely Not Upon Anothe

Half a Loaf is Better Than No Bread

Hear A Parties

It is No Use Crying Over Spilt Milk

It's an Ill Wind that Blows Nobody Good

Lightly Come, Lightly Go

Little Boats Must Keep Near Shore

Many a Little Makes a Mickle

Never Buy a Pig in a Poke

Old Birds are Not to be Caught by Chaff

Opportunity Makes the Thief

Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire

Pride Goeth Before a Fall

The Early Bird Catches the Worm

The Greatest Strokes Make Not the Sweetest Music

The More Haste, the Less Speed

there's Many a Slip 'Twixt the Cup and the Lip

'Tis a Poor heart that Never Rejoices

Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth

Too much of a Good Thing is Good for Nothing

When All is Consumed, Repentence Comes too Late.

When In Doubt Abstain

Who Never Climbed Never Fell

Who Touches Pitch will be Defiled

You May Lead a Horse to the Water But You Cannot Make Him Drink
