If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, then the meal was cooked a long time ago.
Hunger is the best sauce.
One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Fine words butter no parsnips.
Half a loaf is better than no bread.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.
You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.
You can’t eat one’s cake and have it.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Forbidden fruits tastes sweetest.
One swallow doesn’t make a summer.
Dog doesn’t eat dog!
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
It’s no use crying over spilt milk.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
The early bird catches the worm.
Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.
Four eyes see better than two.
Make hay while the sun shines.
You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.
Wonders last but nine days.
There’s no smoke without fire.
