Dumpy Proverbs

BY Honor C. Appleton

ILLUSTRATED IN COLOURS

LONDON: GRANT RICHARDS 1903

Don't stop the plough to catch a mouse.



II.

Conscience makes cowards of us all.



III.

Disobedience brings its own reward.

Time and tide wait for no man.



You need not cry over spilt milk.

I.

Fine feathers make fine birds.



II.

Look before you leap.

III.

Those that laugh last, laugh longest.



Let sleeping dogs lie.

A miss is as good as a mile.



I.

Pride comes before a fall.

II.

There's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip.



III.

It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good.

A watched pot never boils.



A stitch in time saves nine.

I.

Barefooted men should not tread upon thorns.



II.

Experience makes a man wise.

Misfortunes never come singly.



You cannot catch birds by throwing stones at them.

I.

Where there's a will there's a way.



II.

Appearances are deceitful.

The longest way round is the shortest way home.



Kissing goes by favour.
