Learning is not rocket science
Ignorance is bliss, ne’er true for learning
Pull yourself together before things get out of hand
Don’t say we’ll cross the bridge when we come to it
No pain, no gain, so hang in there
But, don’t bite more than you can chew
Yes, your actions speak louder than words
Remember, a picture speaks a thousand words.
Often, you could go on a wild goose’s chase
Nevertheless, there’s a rainbow at the end of the tunnel
Save for a rainy day, by the skin of your teeth if you may
However, do not put all the eggs in one basket
Don’t throw caution to the wind, take a rain check if need be
Look before you leap and don’t cry over spilled milk
Never judge a book by its cover, let no storm brew in a teacup
Remember Fortune favours the bold, Haste makes waste!
