Favorite Quotes: Counting Chickens

"Don't count your chickens before they're hatched."

-English proverb

I think almost everyone has heard of this phrase at least once in their life. Just a perfect example of getting people to realize not to expect the future to happen the way they think it will be like.

The first time I've heard this quote at the American English language classes the last month. But in Ukraine we have similar quotes.
