A little knowledge is a dangerous thing...........

A few dozen well known proverbs, from this list of hundreds:

A poor workman always blames his tools

Don't cross the bridge till you come to it

Everyone wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

Fortune favours the brave

Hard work never did anyone any harm

It takes two to tango

Judge not, that ye be not judged

Let bygones be bygones

Moderation in all things (including moderation)

Music has charms to soothe the savage breast

Nature abhors a vacuum

No pain, no gain

One law for the rich and another for the poor

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones

Silence is golden

There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle

There's none so blind as those who will not see

Time and tide wait for no man

Truth is stranger than fiction

Walnuts and pears you plant for your heirs

Where there's a will there's a way

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink

You can't judge a book by its cover

Youth is wasted on the young
