Don’t put robbers to work in a bank. After all is said and done, more is said than done. A man chases a woman until she catches him. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today. When in charge, ponder. When in trouble, delegate. When in doubt, mumble. Don’t expect. Inspect. Two’s company, but three’s a crowd. Old habits die hard. The first hundred years are the hardest. It takes two to make a bargain. Nothing hurts like the truth. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Make hay while the sun shines.
