You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. The best things in life are free. Something is better than nothing. You can't put old wine in new bottles. There is a time to speak and a time to be silent. A hungry man is an angry man. . Big fish eat little fish. When one door doses, another door opens. One man's meat is another man's poison. Tomorrow never comes. If you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen. Art is long. life is short.
