Some Proverbs to live by...

A first grade teacher collected well-known proverbs. She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb, and asked them come up with the rest. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!
