This can refer to a team or a group of people and that they (as a unit) are only as strong as the weakest person on that team.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
This means that it is just as useful to save the money you have, as it is to earn more money.
All good things come to he who waits.
This is a proverb that is referring to patience.
