    Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes right to the bone.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about!

    She's one sandwich short of a picnic.

    I come from such a confused family that I could go to a
    family reunion with just me, a sandwich and a blanket.

    She's so tough that she uses Ajax for a facial cleanser.

    My mother would always yell at us "If you fall off of that and break your leg, don't come crying to me"

    Patience is a virtue is my favorite.

    One we heard all the time "If you can't say something nice ..you can keep your mouth shut!"

    Every morning I lived at home my Dad woke us up with "Rise and shine!"

    I always told my children "Sharing is Caring".
    "If you steal something , It will never be yours. "
    I have great kids so it must have worked.

    "Barely by the skin off my teeth"

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    "What goes around, comes around"

    "Dirtier than sin"

    "Live and let die"

    "What it is, is what it is"

    "Like a grain of salt"

    "Let bygones be bygones"

    "Kicked the bucket"

    My husbands grandmother used to say (when she knew someone was fibbing) "You're a liar and the truth ain't in you" I always thought that was kind of interesting from a Kentucky woman who had 11 or 12 children. She outta know!
    Also "if its worth doing, its worth doing right"

    We lived on the "other" side of an extemely busy highway and often had to wait several minutes before we could drive across it. My uncle would always say "All things come to those who wait." and then pause before adding "providing they wait long enough and in the right place." My sisters and I often say that to each other when we are waiting, waiting, waiting...
