   2. You are never too old to learn but you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
   3. Clothes make the man but never judge a book by its cover.
   4. Look before you leap but he who hesitates is lost.
   5. Knowledge is power but ignorance is bliss.
   6. Good things come to those who wait but the early bird that gets the       worm.                      
   7. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth but beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
   8. Empty vessels make the most noise but the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
   9. The best things come in small packages but the bigger the better.
  10. Birds of a feather flock together but opposites attract.
