    thanks

    Береги платье снову, а честь смолоду.

    Семь раз отмерь - один раз отрежь.

    Береги платье снову, а честь смолоду. - Save your dress while it's new, and your reputation while you're young. - You have to keep your reputation from very youth.

    Семь раз отмерь - один раз отрежь. - Before cutting something proof it seven times. - Before doing something you should think it good over.

    Actually, it is "отмерить" (he is asking about infinitive of "отмерь", not "отмеривай").
