You can't take blood from a stone.
You can't put new wine in old bottles.
You can't put an old head on young shoulders.
You can't pick up two melons with one hand.
You can't escape death and guests.
You cannot applaud with one hand.
You ask the donkey when's Wednesday?
Work is twice done by the man in a hurry.
Women are just like cats -- they always land on their feet.
