hello linguaphiles! I am having a conversation with a friend and he was asking me about German idioms. In English, we say "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse" while in German the same idea would be "I have the hunger of a bear."

How would one say, "expect the best, prepare for the worst"? I assume there are some people here who can help us out; does anyone know how to express this saying?

EDIT: What are your favorite translations of common idioms?
