Thread Starter

Any ideas?

Thanks!

What about: a rolling stone gathers no moss ?

Unfortunately, I didn't come up with that. A friend of ours is over tonight so I asked the guys and he said it. I wish I could've thought of something- I'll keep thinking just in case

The phrase I know is 'Money makes the world go round', but that is hardly in the spirit..
Oh, and it's 'Don't count your CHICKENS before they're hatched'.
