Travail d'aurore amène l'or = Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.

[The late H. Stacy Marks, R.A., parodied this: “Early to bed and early to rise, No use--unless you advertise.”

The German equivalent is, “Morgenstund hat Gold im Mund”--The morning hour has gold in its mouth.

This is also found in Italian: “Le ore del mattino hanno l'oro in bocca.”]


Aussitôt dit, aussitôt fait = No sooner said than done.
