Important Proverbs – Part 4


  1. “All good things must come to an end.”

    You can’t keep having good luck or fun forever; eventually it will stop.

  2. “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”

    When you try to change someone’s behavior and it doesn’t work, you might have to change instead. For example, if you’re trying to get your classmates to focus on studying but they want to party, maybe you should just party with them.

  3. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

    Different people have different ideas about what’s valuable.

  4. “There’s no time like the present.”

    If you need to do something, don’t wait until later. Do it now.

  5. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

    Different people have different ideas about what’s beautiful.

  6. “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

    When you’re really in need, you think of creative solutions to your problems.

  7. “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

    Save your money.

  8. “Familiarity breeds contempt.”

    When you’re around someone for too long, you get tired of them and annoyed by them.

  9. “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”

    Things sometimes look different than they really are. A restaurant that looks old and small might have amazing food, for example.

  10. “Good things come to those who wait.”

    Be patient.
