A wolf in sheep's clothing. All asses wag their ears. All cats are grey in the dark in the night. All lay load on the willing horse. An ass is but an ass, though laden with gold. An ass loaded with gold climbs to the top of the castle. An empty hand is no lure for a hawk. An old dog barks not in vain.
An ox is taken by the horns, and a man by the tongue. As snug as a bug in a rug. As the old cock crows, so does the young. As well be hanged for a sheep as for a lamb. Barking does seldom bite. Better an egg today than a hen tomorrow. Better be the head of a dog than the tail of a lion. Beware of a silent dog and still water. Birds of a feather flock together.
Care killed the cat. Catch the bear before you sell his skin. Crows do not pick crow's eyes. Curiosity killed a cat. Curses like chickens come home to roost. Dog does not eat dog. Dog eats dog. Dogs that put up many hares kill none.
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. Don't sell the bear's skin before you've caught it. Dumb dogs are dangerous. Each bird loves to hear himself sing. Every ass loves to hear himself bray. Every bird likes its own nest. Every dog has his day. Every dog is a lion at home.
Every dog is valiant at his own door. Every man has his hobby-horse. Every mother thinks her own gosling a swan. Fine feathers make fine birds. First catch your hare. Go to bed with the lamb and rise with the lark. Great barkers are no biters. Great cry and little wool. Hares may pull dead lions by the beard. Hawks will not pick hawks' eyes. If an ass donkey bray at you, don't bray at him. If the sky falls, we shall catch larks. If wishes were horses, beggars might ride. If you agree to carry the calf, they'll make you carry the cow.
If you run after two hares, you will catch neither. If you sell the cow, you sell her milk too. Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. Care killed the cat. Practise what you preach. It is no use crying over spilt milk. The devil is not so black as he is painted. Brevity is the soul of wit.
No news is good news. Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you? East or West, home is best. A good beginning makes a good ending. Don't cross a bridge till you come to it. Bad news travels fast. Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
The rotten apple injures its neighbours. Hunger is the best sauce. Appetite comes with eating. Appearances are deceitful. What is done cannot be undone.
The proverb a cat in gloves catches no mice means that being too careful or too polite can actually cause a person to be unsuccessful in reaching his or her. proverb One might have to incorporate blunt or aggressive action in order to obtain results that cannot be achieved with passivity or restraint.
