Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth

The way to tell a horse’s age is by looking at its teeth. The saying literally means that if someone gives you a horse, it’s rude to look in its mouth to check how old it is, that’s like looking for the price tag on a gift.

This maxim reminds us that when someone does something nice for us, we should simply be grateful rather than trying to evaluate its value.
