Old Sayings

God don’t love ugly

Bite the bullet

You can do bad all by yourself

That’s like going to hell wearing a gasoline suit

A blessing in disguise

Speak of the devil

Don’t count your eggs until your chicken’s hatch

Just because you want it doesn’t mean you’re going to get it, “people in hell want ice water but they can’t have it

Heard it through the grapevine

Work hard play harder

Kill two birds with one stone

Let your conscious be your guide

Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do

The ditch you dig for somebody else may be your own

If you love something set free, if it loves you back it will return

Desperate acts call for desperate measures

Straight from the horse’s mouth

An apple a day keeps the doctor away

Through thick and thin

Old habits are hard to break

Even teeth and tongues fall out sometimes

A friend in need is a friend indeed

Shame on him the first-time shame on you if it happens to you again

The third time is a charm

You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink

The devil made me do it

There can be no rainbow without some rain

Crazy as a bat

Running away like a bat out of hell

Icing on the cake

The last straw

It will make you or break you

Time is not on your side

Promises are made to be broken

Once in a blue moon

Don’t believe everything you hear

If it sounds too good to be true it is

Every time his elbow bends his mouth opens

If his mouth is moving, he’s lying 

Beauty is only skin deep

You can’t judge a book by its cover

Study long you study wrong

Stay in the center of your expertise

Like beating a dead horse

Some people will argue with a stop sign

A dime a dozen

Every dog has his day

Don’t beat around the bush

Don’t bite off more than you can chew

Don’t let your mouth write a check your butt has to cash

Between a rock and a hard place

Sometimes you must cut corners to make ends meet

When you lay down with a dog you get up with fleas

Got a taste of your own medicine

Got my second wind

Hit the nail on the head

I bet you’ll eat it before it eats you

Inch by inch is a cinch but yard by yard is hard

Don’t burn bridges

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Like giving candy to a baby

Like a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest

He or she could sell somebody London Bridge

A piece of cake

Adding insult to injury
