    Do you know the idiom?


    I'm looking for the idiom meaning: things beggining well ends well.
    If there are someone that speaks spanish it is :"Lo que empieza bien, termina bien."

    Thanks in advance

    There is a saying All's well that ends well. but it obviously doesn't focus on the issue of beginning. hope this is what you wanted to know.

    'All's well that ends well' is a play written by Shakespeare, not an idiom.

    It is not an exact translation, but there is a saying "Start as you mean to go on" or "Start as you mean to finish".

    It's certainly used as an idiom.

    It means that even though there were difficulties along the way, as long as something works out okay in the end, it's good.

    (If it ends well, then it's all good.)
