    Hello,

    I like proverbs and aphorisms and I collect them.

    This one I use, myself:

    - Don't leave until tomorrow what you can do today! -

    (You never know, what is going to happen tomorrow.)

    I have just found, that the same has used by Benjamin Franklin.

    Here are some I like...

    A good name is better than riches.
    A friend in need is a friend indeed.
    It's the straw that breaks the camel's back.
    Might is always right.

    There's also:
    No dejes para otra hora, lo que puedas hacer ahora.

    Puedes darle un girito a esto y decir algo 'más diver' como:
    No dejes para mañana lo que puedas hacer pasado mañana.
    A caballo regalado donde 'puñetas' lo meto;)
    etc.
    Saludos.

    There is another one:

    Don't leave it for tomorrow, what you can do day after tomorrow (we say it for lazy people, they think somebody else is going to do that).
