Early American Proverbs

18th Century Woodcut

You can't do more than you can do.

 Those who have the most to say speak the least.

Speak of angels and you will hear their wings.

 Never miss a good chance to shut up.

 Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.

 You can't unscramble an egg.

A little too late is too much too late.

If you're all wrapped up in yourself you're a small package, and not much of a surprise.

 A person is as good as their conversation.

 Adversity and prosperity equally make monsters of men.

Don't live it up so high you don't have a place to lie down.
