Don't go between the tree and the bark.
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Don't put the cart before the horse.
Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.
The door swings both ways.
Each to his own taste
The early bird catches the worm. But the second mouse gets the cheese.
An empty vessel makes the most noise
An Englishman's home is his castle.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Every rose has its thorn.
The exception proves the rule.
Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Eat your own dog food.
The ends justify the means.
