Women and children first.
You cannot wash charcoal white.
You can't un-ring a bell.
We soon believe what we desire.
What is worth doing at alt is worth doing well.
When one door closes, another door opens.
Wherever you go, there you are.
Wonders will never cease.
You can't fight city hall.
You can't win them all.
Wealth is nothing without health.
What must be, must be.
When pigs fly.
While the doctors consult, the patient dies.
Words pay no debts.
You can't get a quart into a pint pot.
You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve over.
When Queen Anne was alive.
While the grass grows the horse starves.
Work expands so as to fill the time available.
You can't get blood out of a stone.
You don't dip your pen in company ink.
Well begun is half done.
