A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush 

A bird in the hand is worth ten fleeing

A blithe heart makes a blooming visage

A car on the road is worth two in the ditch

A cheerful chap may live long and still die young

A choice plant may grow in a cracked pot

A contented mind is a continual feast

A cracks maun be trew,d

A creaking gate hangs a long time

A crookit stick has a crookit shadow

A dowg winna howl
If ye fell him wi a bone

A drop of good stuff
And a snug social party
To spend a dull evening
Gay social and hearty

A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind,
But I wonder if the Poet would change his mind,
If in a crowd one day he were to find,
A fellow feeling in his coat behind.

A fool or so from any quarter,
May lead a horse or so to water,
But 20 men can`t make him drink

A full purse never lacks friends

A gentle reminder

A good cause makes a strong arm

A good heart's worth gold (Shakespeare)

A good home is better than riches

A good laugh is sunshine in the house

A good name is better than riches

A good name keeps its lustre in the dark

A greedy e'e ne'er got a guid pennyworth

A guid tale can be twice tauld

A hair on the head is worth two on the brush

A Hair on the head is worth two on the chin

A hedge between friends keeps friendship green

A hungry man`s an angry man

A kindness is never lost

A kindness today is worth six in the future

A little explained, a little endured,
A little forgiven and the quarrel is cured

A magpie can talk for a terrible span
An soa, an all, can a Yorkshireman

A man may travel thro' the world
And sow it thick with friendship

A man made up in himself makes a small parcel

A man that can`t make a mistake can`t make anything

A many a word at random spoken,
Can wound or heal a heart that`s broken

A match for any man

A merry heart goes a long way

A merry heart goes all the day

A millstone and the human heart are driven ever round,
if they have nothing else to grind they must themselves be ground

A necessity of life ( on a salt pot )

A passage perilous maketh a port pleasant

A pipe lets take,
For old times sake

A place fort Ashes

A place for Hat pins

A place for everything and everything in it`s place

A pound of pluck is worth a load of luck

A present from Torquay, Straight from the Cow

A reekie house and a guirnin wife,
Will lead a man a fashious life

A rolling stone gathers no moss

A safe conscience makes a sound sleep

A saucepan though I be
The fires not meant for me
And as I'm no use as I am
Come fill me up with jam

A smile for every day
Makes sunshine all the year

A son is a son 'til he takes him a wife
But a daughter's a daughter all of her life

A still tongue makes a wise head

A stitch in time saves nine

A thing has an end and a pudding has twa

A thing of beauty is a joy forever

A turn well done is soon done

A winner never shirks and a shirker never wins

A wet sheet, a flowing sail,
And a mind that`s blowing free

A womans face may be a chemist`s fortune

A Woman is only a Woman
But a good Cigar is a smoke

A word frae ye`s neist tae a word wi`ye

Tis deeds alone will win the prize

Adventures are to the Adventurous

All that's mirthful glad and gay
Make for you a happy Xmas day

All the best poets visited The Lake District.
So did I, In Coronation Year. 1937

All things must yield to Industry and Time,
None cease to rise but those who cease to climb

Always help a lame dog over a stile

Any time means no time

April showers Bring forth flowers

As a tree falls so shall it lie,
As a man lives so shall he die

aisy on the jam

As I was going to St Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits,
Kits, cats sacks and wives,
How many were going to St Ives ?

As Pan bro't music form his vocal reed
Let us seek concord in the fragrant weed

as wee'l sune as syne

At a great pennyworth pause a while

At all times and everywhere he gave his strength
to the weak his substance to the poor his sympathy
to the suffering his heart to God

Ave another go if ee don't do it furst time

Awen dysg Goell awen?



 Go to mottoes A or C


Barking dogs do not bite

Bathes Original Devonshire Violets

Be a little deaf and blind 
Happiness you`ll always find

Be aizy wit tha butter

Be aisy with the craim

Be aisy with the jam

Be aisy with tha junket

Be aisy with tha sugar

Be always as merry as you can,
For few will delight in a sorrowful man

Be canny with the butter it's not so cheap

Be canny with the cream

Be canny with the honey

Be canny with the salt

Be canny with the sugar

Be careful with fire
Is good advice we know
But be careful with words
Is ten times doubly so

Be easy with the cheese. Eat well of the bread

Be happy while your living,
For you`re a long time dead

Be just and fear not
Heaven helps those who help themselves

Be kynde always to those of low estate
And try ye man of Ross to imitate

Be like a sundial, count only the sunny hours

Be mine this message glad to bear
Be yours the season's joys to share
Let the world slide, Let the world go
A fig for care and a fig for woe

Be not weary in well doing

Be slow to promise
But quick to perform

Be strong, Be good, Be pure,
The right only shall endure

Be sure you have the water hot
When you use this shaving pot

Be the day weary or be the day long,
At last it ringeth to evensong

Be to others kind and true. As you'd have others be to you

Be your own most useful friend
Cease on others to depend

Bearded or shaven,
Wit comes from heaven

Believe not all you hear
And tell not all you believe

Beneath the sunlit sky
Dewy shamrocks sparkling lie
Strewn along the pathway bright
Gladdened by created light

Better be out of the world than out of fashion

Better be thrang ner dewin nowt

Better do one thing 
Than dream all things

Better to have bad luck than no luck

Better to sit still than to rise to fall

Better to smoke here than hereafter

Better wait on the cook than the doctor

Better wear shoon than sheets

Better work wisely than work hard

Blessed are the drowsy
For they shall soon drop off

Blot out my faults
But not my memory

Blot out my past 
But not my memory

Bon Jour !

Bread - Cut and come again

Break me not or you'll rue your loss?
I come from the House of the Man of Ross

Brevity is the soul of wit (Shakespeare)

Britannia mourns her heroes now at rest,
Each of them doing their Country`s work ( Boer war )

Bryght be the stars on the eve of St.John
Luckie the babe that is born there-on

Bustle is not industry

Busy curious thristy fly. Drink with me and drink as I
Buttercups and daisies
Fairest of field flowers
Coming in the springtime
To deck the earth of ours
Bwythyn Cymreig

By and by is the path that leads to never

By my shape you can see I`m a dustpan,
Don`t use me for such if you please,
Butter pehaps maybe more in my line,
And I`m sure I`m quite suited for cheese

By timely resistance
The greatest evils may be overcome

Careful with fire is good advice we know
Careful with words is doubly so

Ca`yer ain girr ne`er heed yer neebors

Chosen leaf,
of Bard and chief,
Old Erin`s native shamrock

Cider doth stir up the mind
And awakes a desire to eat

Come an' zee us in the zummer

Come fill me full with liquors sweet,
For that is good when friends do meet,
But pray take care don`t let me fall,
Lest you lose your liquor, jug and all

Come fill the cup that clears
Today of past regrets and future fears

Come my old friends and take a pot,
But mark now what I say,
When thou drinkest thy neighbour`s health,
Drink not thine own away 1822 or 1778

Come what come may
Time and the hour runs through the roughest day

Comfort is better than pride

Conduct hath the loudest tongue

contented wi little an cantie wi mair

Contentment is a constant feast

Contrivance is better than force

Cymru am Byth

Cultivate only good habits
