esl english: if wishes were horses beggars might ride


  1. if wishes were horses beggars might ride - If wishing could make things happen, then even the most destitute people would have everything they wanted. 
  2. if ifs and ands were pots and pans - Wishing for things is useless. (Often said in reply to someone who says something beginning with "If only....") Daughter: If only we didn't have to move out of town, I'd be the happiest girl in the world. Grandmother: If ifs and ands were pots and pans, there'd be no work for tinkers' hands.
