Hi! Check these out:

Strike while the irone is hot – Куй железо, пока горячо.

Every cloud has a silver lining – Нет худа без добра.

Out of sight out of mind  С глаз долойиз сердца вон.

The more the merrier – В тесноте, да не в обиде.

easy come easy go

the rotten apple injures it's neighbor

beauty is skin deep

no pains no gains

berd of feather flock togethther

never too old to learn

always had been always will be

do as would be done

to err human

late better than never Smile

for looking with likeness on me

for showing me things i never dreamt to see

for helpin me to deal with stress

when life is a big old mess

for being a unique site

when there are billions of sites

for givin me family and friends

on which i can depend

for serving as a path foer me to go

when life fails to grow

for helping me to realise

that there are friends in disguise

who encourages me to cope with life

and all the strife

and showing me the right way

when  coose to go he wrong way

thank you fo aiding me

to be the best i can be

keep on shining ya light

cuz ma thanx to you are infinite
