You buy land, you buy stones, you buy meat, you buy bones

You can catch more flies than vinegar

You cannot burn the candles at both ends

You cannot get blood from a stone

You cannot have it both ways

You cannot loose what you never had

You cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs

You cannot sell the cow and drink the milk

You cannot shift an old tree without it dying

You can take a horse to the water, but you can´t make him drink

You can’t always get what you want

You can´t fit round peg in a square hole

You can´t have your cake and eat it

You can’t judge a book by its cover.

You can´t please everyone

You can´t squeeze blood from a turnip

You can´t teach an old dog new tricks

You can´t tell a book by its cover

You can´t win them all

You don´t get something for nothing

You must grin and bear it

You must lose a fly to catch a trout

You never know what you can do till you try

You scratch my back and I´ll scratch yours

you’ve made your bed now lie in it

You win a few, you lose a few
