    Thumbs down English proverbs

    I have a old swedish teacher that is trying to get in as many proverbs in her lessons as possible, that makes her a little different from others due that I dont think that its so many that these days use these old proverb in their normal conversations. So, to make them sparkle in a new light I am gonna ask you what old/(new) proverb you think is the best/ or what proverb you think describes you the most. So, ....
    (hope that this will be a fruitful discussion^____^)


    What proverbs describe you the most/ or you think is the best?
    cry, scream, shriek, yell it out! Let me hear it and share it with the world!!! (or atleast the other members).

    For me: its All that glisters is not gold.
    William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, act II, scene 7
    Possible interpretation: Not everything is what it appears to be.

    The one's that I belive describes me the most have to be:
    * I think, therefore I am
    or possible
    * Veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered; said by Julius Caesar during a message to the Roman senate)


    Others that I think is good and worth considering:
    * The only stupid question is the one that is not asked.
    * You can't have it both ways.
    * Truth will out.
    * There are no endings only new beginnings.
    * The best things in life are free.
    and ...
    * If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.



    [...] I know that it's wrong to post links to other sites likes this (see below), but because I dont belive that so many knows about so many proverbs I thought that it couldnt harm, but if you dont agree with me, just let me know and I will delete it straight away and let ppl look for proverbs by themselfes (hahah). Easy done, easy deleted, that is.

    Help for you that don't know so many proverbs/sayings:
    http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/English_proverbs
    Sol, vind och vatten är det bästa som jag vet
    men det är på dig jag tänker i hemlighet
    Sol, vind och vatten, höga berg och djupa hav
    Det, är mina drömmar vävda av

    Full song, click, and text and translation to the song above, click.
    One of my absolute favorite summer songs.

    That was a good one.
