Important Proverbs – Part 5


  1. “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”

    Have a backup plan. Don’t risk all of your money or time in one plan.

  2. “Two heads are better than one.”

    When two people cooperate with each other, they come up with better ideas.

  3. “The grass is always greener on the other side of the hill.”

    People tend to want whatever they don’t have.

  4. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

    Don’t do mean things to people.

  5. “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”

    If one member of a team doesn’t perform well, the whole team will fail.

  6. “Honesty is the best policy.”

    Don’t lie.

  7. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

    Sometimes it’s good to be away from your partner, because it makes you want to see each other again.

  8. “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”

    If you try to help someone, but they don’t take your advice or offers, give up. You can’t force someone to accept your help.

  9. “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”

    Your plans might not work out, so don’t start thinking about what you’ll do after you succeed. Wait until you’ve already succeeded, and then you can think about what to do next.

  10. “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”

    Don’t trust other people to do important things for you. You have to do things yourself to control the quality of the results.
