An old Dog will learn no Tricks; If you trust before you try, You may repent before you die.
After sweet Meat comes sour Sauce; [woodcut of stout man, seated, with bandaged foot]
Nothing venture, nothing have; Virtue which parleys is near a Surrender.
The Traceys have always the Wind in their Faces; To cut large Thongs out of another Man’s Leather; Too much of one Thing is good for nothing
Well begun is half ended;  All is well that ends well.

Many Words will not fill a Bushel;  The younger Brother the better Gentleman.
A Shoemaker must not go beyond his Last
Brag is a good Dog, but Holdfast is a better;  The Belly has no Ears;  [woodcut: mouse by house perhaps made from candle with snuffer]
One scabbed Sheep marrs a whole Flock;  Tread on a Worm and it will turn.
One good Turn deserves another;  He steals a Goose, and gives the Giblets in Alms.
It’s neither Rhime nor Reason; What is got over the Devil’s Back will be spent under his Belly.
Proferred Service stinks;  The Receiver is as bad as the Thief;  Reckon not your Chickens before they are hatched.

Near is my Shirt, but Nearer is my Skin.
The more Haste the worse Speed;  When the Sky falls we shall catch Larks.
He makes a Rod for his own Breech.
To buy a Pig in a poke;  Robin Hood’s Pennyworths;  He looks one way and rows another.
A Rolling Stone gathers no Moss;  It is good to make Hay while the Sun shines.
’Tis too late to spare when all is spent;  One Swallow does not make Summer.
Fat Paunches make Lean Pates.
Hungry Dogs will eat dirty Pudding;  He that would live at Peace and Rest, Must hear and see, and say the Best.
Harm watch, Harm catch; It is a good Horse that never stumbles.
Little Pitchers have great Ears;  Many talk of Robin Hood who never shot in his Bow.
Sue a Beggar and catch a Louse; Many Hands make Light Work; [woodcut: well-dressed man scratches his head standing near a beggar with outstretched hat]
Better play at small Game than stand out;  Give him a Rowland for his Oliver.
Give him a Rowland for his Oliver;  Penny Wise, and Pound Foolish;  He that Reckons without his Host must reckon again.
Need makes the old Wife trot;  [woodcut: barefoot old woman hitches up skirts to cross a stream]
Give a Man Luck and throw him into the Sea;  Money makes the Mare to go;  Much falls between the Cup and the Lip.
Good Wine needs no Bush;  Kissing goes by Favour;  A Lark is better than a Kite
He sets the Fox to keep his Geese.  [woodcut: fox watching geese]

All goes down Gutter-lane; As Wise as a Man of Gotham; As good as George of Green; [woodcut: stout man drinks from mug, holds saussage with a fork]
A Fool’s Bolt is soon shot;  Birds of a Feather flock together;  Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire.
Curs’d Cows have short Horns; Much falls between the Cup and the Lip.  No longer pipe no longer dance.
As you brew so you shall bake; Every bean has its Black; it is an ill wind that blows no body good
