Mangled Proverbs

by Wendy Freborg

A little kindness makes strange bedfellows.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a savage beast.
All that glitters goes a long way.
Money maketh the heart grow fonder.
A friend in need will get you nowhere.
Haste moves in mysterious ways.
There’s nothing new that ends well.
The road to hell is its own reward.
Virtue flies when you’re having fun.
A fool and his money make good neighbors.

Confession is the mother of invention.
Necessity is the root of all evil.
All that glitters is fair in love and war.
A penny saved is stranger than fiction.
Don’t pour new wine you can’t finish.
Promises will come home to roost.
A journey of a thousand miles can be deceiving.
A woman’s work doesn’t pay.
Flattery can’t hurt you.
Wealth turneth away wrath.

The best things in life flock together.
Cleanliness is only skin deep.
Look before you inherit the earth.
A stitch in time saves a thousand words.
One good turn is never undone.
An apple a day is another man’s poison.
A dog shall set you free.
Justice is the sincerest form of flattery.
Business is on the side of the big battalions.
Good things come to those who advertise.
