There is real wisdom to be found in proverbs, yet to some extent they seem to have gone out of fashion.

A lot of what you fancy does you good.
Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.
A penny saved is a penny.
A problem shared is a problem sorted.
A word to the wise is rarely enough.
Few good things come to he who waits.
Barking dogs bite too.
Indiscretion is the better part of valor.
Cheats always prosper.
Do as I do, not as I say.
A place for everything and nothing in its place.
Don’t mount your chickens before they are hatched.
The left hand has a pretty good idea what the right hand is doing.
Many a true word spoken in a vest.
He who laughs last laughs alone.
The buck stops somewhere over there.
