"A bird in hand is worth two in the bush", out of the bush those two you can flush.
"Don't cry over spilt milk", that's what people say. The cat can drink it, it very well may.
"Measure twice, cut once", good Swedish advice. Whatever you're building will come out nice.
"When the cat is away the mouse will play". You can bet at mealtime the cat will have it's day.
"What's good for the goose is good for the gander", meaning equalization no matter what the gender.
"Wild horses couldn't keep you away", I don't see how they could unless upon the ground you lay.
When you are peeved "you have your tail over the dash", be careful you are in a position to have a crash.
"Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow you may die" and if you don't, on indigestion you can rely.
You have an idea if you have "a bee in your bonnet". It's well that you don't, or you would be throwing a fit.
So just" walk a mile in my shoes" and you will know, why out of my mouth these silly things flow.
