A __________________________________

A disease known is half-cured
All is well that ends well

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
All play and no work makes Jack a mere boy
All roads lead to Rome
All that glitters is not gold
A mother's love never changes
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth



B __________________________________

Bad news travels fast
Better late than never
Blood will have blood



C __________________________________

Call a spade a spade
(appeler un chat un chat)
Civility costs nothing
Curiosity killed the cat



D __________________________________

Deeds, no words



E __________________________________

Earlier said than done
Eat to live, but not live to eat
Even the walls have ears
Every Jack has his Jill
Every why has a wherefore
Exchange is no robbery
Experience is the best teacher

F __________________________________

Fortune
favours the bold



G __________________________________

Good health is above wealth



H
__________________________________


Half a loaf is better than no bread



I __________________________________

Idleness is the root of all evil
Idle young, needy old
In union there is strength



K __________________________________

Know thyself /ai/
(Connais-toi toi-même)


L __________________________________

Lack of knowledge is darker than night
Like father, like son
Live to learn and learn to live
Love is blind

M __________________________________

Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can
Make your enemy your friend
Make yourself necessary to someone
Many men, many minds
Many heads are better than one
Measure is treasure
Money doesn't grow on trees
Money has no smell
Money is the root of all evil


N __________________________________

Nature abhors a vacuum
Necessity is the mother of invention
Never fry a fish till it's caught
Never offer to teach fish to swim
No gains without pains
No news is good news


O __________________________________

One love drives out another
One should eat to live, not live to eat
One swallow does not make a summer
Out of sight, out of mind


P __________________________________

Poverty is no shame, laziness is
Practice makes perfect
(C'est en forgeant que l'on devient forgeron)

T __________________________________

Tastes differ
Time is money


W __________________________________

We soon believe what we desire
What is done cannot be undone
When in Rome do as the Romans do
When the cat's away the mice will play
