Have you ever thought about the fact that there is a saying for just about any situation? There are so many proverbs that you can find wise sayings that say the opposite. Here are a few examples:


Actions speak louder than words. The pen is mightier than the sword.
Look before you leap. He who hesitates is lost.
Many hands make light work. Too many cooks spoil the broth.
A silent man is a wise one. A man without words is a man without thoughts.
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Clothes make the man. Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Better safe than sorry.
The bigger, the better. The best things come in small packages.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Out of sight, out of mind.
What will be, will be. Life is what you make it.
Cross your bridges when you come to them. Forewarned is forearmed.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
With age comes wisdom. Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings come wisdom.
The more, the merrier. Two’s company; three’s a crowd
