It would be interesting in seeing what sayings and proverbs are used around the world. I'll start with: Never cry over split milk. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Pissing in the wind will only lead to wet shoes and rusty zip. Too many chefs spoil the broth. You don't get owt' for nowt. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. The best things in life are free. (ww) You can't tell a book by it's cover. The straw that broke the camels back. Where there's a will, there's a way. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Out of the frying pan into the fire.
