A woman's place…

Many proverbs are wise and thought–provoking. However on scanning through the appendix of my dictionary (as you do) I came upon some real gems. Not least:

If you cannot ride two horses at once you should not be in the circus

Which seems like perfectly good advice, or:

If you would be happy for a week take a wife; if you would be happy for a month kill a pig; but if you would be happy all your life plant a garden

Then there are the incredibly un–PC phrases, like:

One Englishman can beat three Frenchmen

Surely not at football, or:

A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them the better they be

And of course there are the Yorkshire ones:

Hear all, see all, say nowt, tak' all, keep all, gie nowt, and if tha ever does owt for nowt do it for thysen

To finish with here is the weather forecast:

If Candlemas day be sunny a bright, winter will have another flight; if Candlemas day be cloudy with rain, winter is gone, and won't come again
