Good old-fashioned sayings

Yesterday a family member came over to my mother's house. We was talking about her upcoming divorce. Her husband cheated on her and she ran into him and the other woman in the grocery store. The family went to saying how she was shocked at how she looked she thought he would at least found someone that looked good. My mom then said, "Well sweetie you know the saying ' they go from sugar to shit'." I thought that was so funny. What are some old-fashioned saying that you remember or use?
