No clever arrangement of bad eggs will make a good omelet. C.S. Lewis

You will find it out when you want to fry the eggs. — Spanish.

The proverb has its origin from a thief, who, having stolen a frying-pan, was met by the master of the house as he was going out, who asked him his business there ; he answered, ” You will know when you go to fry the eggs.”

It is applicable to cases where we only discover the value of a thing when it is wanted.
