Lets Learn more Proverbs, Idioms and Similes


As heavy as lead.

Go down like a lead balloon

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth

Like a bull in a china shop

As sturdy as an oak

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

There are proverbs for just about every circumstance, and they can be fit to any situation.
Here are some more proverbs for kids
Actions speak louder than words
Adversity makes strange bedfellows
After a storm comes a calm
All good things must come to an end
Examples of Proverbs

Proverbs:
Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
A stitch in time saves nine.
You can't have your cake and eat it too.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.


Similes:
Quick as a flash.
Dumb as an ox.
White as a sheet.

Then there's a great joke my Dad once told me. A friend of his saw a really old stove and said, "This stove is so old, it remembers Captain Cook!" Hey, it's not a simile, or a proverb. But it is certainly funny.
