English- Arabic proverbs حكم وأمثال إنجليزية - عربي

a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
a bitter pill to swallow
a cat has nine lives
a cat may look at a king
a faint heart never won fair lady
a friend in need is a friend indeed
a fox is not taken twice in the same snare
a jack of all trades is master of none
a life for a life
a man can do no more than he can
a man cannot serve two masters
a man is known by the company he keeps
a secret between more than two is no secret
a stitch in time saves nine
a storm in a teacup
a word to the wise is enough
action speak louder than words
all ears
all is not gold that glitters
as you sow , so will you reap
any port in a storm
an iron fist in a velvet glove
barking dogs seldom bite
beauty is skin deep
Beggars cannot be choosers
errer be sure than sorry
Birds of a feather flock together
Blood is thicker than water
care brings grey hair
Carry coals to Newcastl
Carry one's hands
Charity begins at home
Choose the lesser of two evils
Circumstances alter cases
Cleanliness is next to godliness
Curses come home to roost
Clothes do not make the man
