He used to say things like all that glitters is not gold, and you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Money doesn’t grow on trees. Never trust a man a dog doesn’t like. Early bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. Beggars can’t be choosers. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. A closed mouth catches no flies. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. The squeaky wheel gets the oil. An apple a day keeps the doctors away. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. A leopard cannot change its spots. The early bird gets the worm. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. A watched pot never boils. Good things come to those who wait. Never trust a skinny cook. A rolling stone gathers no moss. Waste not, want not. Cloudy mornings give way to clear evenings. Two heads are better than one. Make hay while the sun shines. Into every life, a little rain must fall. Finders keepers, losers weepers. It goes without saying, he was a good man.
