By the yard, life is hard. By the inch, it's a cinch.
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we shall die.
A dose of adversity is often as needful as a dose of medicine.
Christmas comes, but once a year is enough.
Even a dog knows the difference between being stumbled
over and being kicked.
A girl with cotton stockings never sees a mouse.
Close, but no cigar.
Every man has a fool up his sleeve.
A malignant sore throat is a danger;
a malignant throat not sore is worse.
Crap or get off the pot.
Every man has one black patch,
and some have two.
A man can die just once.
Don't close the barn door after
the horse runs away.
Every man hath a fool in his sleeve.
A man can't do more than he can do.
What says Don Ferdinando?
Don't cry over spilt milk.
Every man hath his hobby-horse.
A man is as big as the things that made him mad.
Don't cry till you are out of the wood.
Feed a cold, starve a fever.
Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.
Feed sparingly and defy the physician.
