No es oro todo lo que reluce

Everything that glitters is not gold

Más vale tarde que nunca

Better late than never

Ojos que no ven corazón que no siente

out of sight, out of mind

A caballo regalado no le mires el diente

Never look a gift horse in the mouth

A la ocasión la pintan calva

Strike while the iron is hot

Cuando a Roma fueres, hazlo que vieres

When in Rome, do as the Romans do

No empieces la casa, por el tejado

Don't put the cart in front of the horse

A lo hecho, pecho

What's done is done

No se puede estar en misa y repicando

You can't have your cake and eat it too

No hay que vender la piel del oso antes de haberlo matado

Don't count your chickens before they hatch

Sentirse como pez en el agua

To feel at home

Sentirse como una cabra en un garaje

To feel like a fish out of water

Ser pan comido

To be a piece of cake

Estar tirado

To be a piece of junk

Estar entre la espada y la pared

To be stuck between a rock and a hard place

Estar en una situación sin salida

Catch 22

A quien siembra vientos, recoge tempestades

You reap what you sow

Perro ladrador, poco mordedor

All bark, no bite

El amor es ciego

Love is blind

No hay mal que por bien, no venga

Every cloud has a silver lining

A la cama no te irás sin saber una cosa más

You learn a new thing every day

Eso es harina de otra costal

A horse of a different color; a bird of a different feather

De tal palo, tal astilla

Like father like son; the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Los desgracias nunca vienen solas

Misery loves company; When it rains, it pours

A quien madruga, Dios ayuda

The early bird gets the worm

Cuando el río suena, agua lleva

When there's smoke, there's fire

Mala hierba nunca muere

Only the good die young

Agua pasada no mueve molino

Water under the bridge

En boca cerrada no entran moscas

Silence is golden

Llamar al pan pan y al vino vino

Call it what it is

Hablar en plata

To put it bluntly

Fue llegar y besar el santo

No sooner said than done

Cada loco con su tema

To each his own

No dejes para mañana lo que puedas hacer hoy

Don't leave for tomorrow what you could do today

No ser nada del otro jueves, estar en medio como el jueves

Nothing to write home about, nothing special

Saliste de Guatemala y te metiste en Guatapeor

Out of the frying pan and into the fryer
