French Proverbs

Every cloud has a silver lining Après la pluie, le beau temps
Better late than never Mieux vaut tard que jamais
It never rains but it pours Un malheur ne vient jamais seul
Where there's a will there's a way Vouloir, c’est pouvoir
Prevention is better than cure Mieux vaut prévenir que guérir
History repeats itself Plus ça change plus c’est la même chose
You reap what you sow On récolte ce qu’on a semé
Practice makes perfect Usage rend maître
It's no use crying over spilled milk À chose faite, point de remède
The end justifies the means La fin justifie les moyens
Nothing ventured nothing gained Qui ne risque rien n’a rien
The first step is the hardest Il n’y a que le premier pas qui coûte
Everyman for himself Chacun pour soi
Everything comes to those who wait Tout vient à point à qui sait attendre
To kill 2 birds with one stone Faire d’une pierre deux coups
Time will tell Qui vivra verra
Everything has gone to the dogs Tout est allé à vau l’eau
It’s all the rage at the moment Cela fait fureur en ce moment
In the long run À la longue
To live from hand to mouth Vivre au jour le jour
To be optimistic Voir tout en rose
One must make ends meet Il faut joindre les deux bouts
For want of something better Faute de mieux
Reluctantly À contre cœur
Come what may Advienne que pourra
To make a mountain out of a mole hill Faire d’une mouche un éléphant
Practise what you preach Il faut prêcher d’exemple
To be pessimistic Regarder les choses du mauvais côté
I arrived safe and sound Je suis arrivé à bon port
Again and again À plusieurs reprises
As things are nowadays Par le temps qui court
What’s the use À quoi bon
It’s my pet hate C’est ma bête noire
It’s a godsend C'est une aubaine
If the worst comes to the worst Au pis aller
I can hardly believe it J'ai peine à le croire
On second thoughts Réflexion faite
