Beggars can’t be choosers
Dollars to Donuts
killing two birds with one stone
going to hell in a handbasket
til the cows come home
Pennies make dimes and dimes make dollars.
Only the good die young.
Be careful what you wish for.
Never say never.
If the shoe fits wear it.
If something can’t go on forever one day it will stop
if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen
like a bat out of hell
like putting the cart before the horse
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
A watched pot never boils.
One in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.
That’s like robbing Peter to pay Paul.
The grass is always greener on the other side.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
No news is good news.
When taking a pill, always read the bottle.
Sooner is better than later.
