It's as easy as pie 

In a nutshell 

Said the cat out of the bag.

Let's get down to brass tacks. 

Wake up and smell the coffee! 

Because a watched pot never boils. 

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. 

It's slow as cold molasses in a snowstorm, 

that's the pot calling the kettle black. 

A leopard can't change it's spots because 

you're barking up the wrong tree.

If you can't cut the mustard

Don't cry over spilt milk. 

Because curiosity killed the cat, 

a wise man once said.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch,

or put all your eggs in one basket

because you can't beat a dead horse

between a rock and a hard place.

You'll learn the ropes.

Just have a taste of your own medicine!

Hit the ground running!

Throw caution to the wind! 

But don't kick he bucket! 

Because idle hands are the devil's tools..

You'll cut your nose off despite your face.

It takes two to tango...

So hold your horses.

Let bygones be bygones, 

and let sleeping dogs lie.

Because you can lead a horse to water, 

but you can't make it drink. 

Make no bones about it.

The eagle has landed, 

so it's water under the bridge. 

Don't throw the baby out with the bath water,

or judge a book by its cover

Just keep all your ducks in a row,

until hell freezes over.

Because you'll catch more flies with honey

than you will with vinegar.

But do what you want...

The ball's in your court.
