Hint
Answer
Wetter gate then fever
Better late than never
Too prongs won't fake I light
Two wrongs don't make a right
She earls bard latches tie warm
The early bird catches the worm
Ease home, ease to
Easy come, easy go
Too beads art wetter thin ore
Two heads are better than one
Where's so plane lake Rome
There's no place like home
I hatched poo lever toils
A watched pot never boils
Yon read that yon saw
You reap what you sow
Won't kite she band chat feels yon
Don't bite the hand that feeds you
Don's fudge I look my ins covet
Don't judge a book by its cover
Food thinks some so these why want
Good things come to those who wait
Bester sane then worry
Better safe than sorry
Treat winds chink alive
Great minds think alike
Chat toes um mush home dawn
What goes up must come down
Ail it fain on cove any way
All is fair in love and war

Please accept "The early bird gets the worm." Both versions are used, but "gets" is much more prominent, based on Google results: 806k for gets, and 409k for catches.

'Gets' is not a one-letter alteration of 'latches'.

"All's fair in love and war" should be accepted, as that's how it's usually said.
