You can't always rely on an old saying.
 
"He who hesitates is lost."
 
But "Look before you leap."
 
I used to live in the country and one very curious word I heard was "whopper-jawed." Not quite sure what it means; maybe "bent out of shape."
 
My late father-in-law would occasionally use the exclamation "Gosh all fishhooks," one of his milder ones. But I once heard it in a pre-war movie.
