Proverbs

   نوشته شده توسط: Apollo    نوع مطلب :ENGLISH PROVERBS ،

Between the devil and the deep sea


To choose between two equally bad alternatives in a serious dilemma




Where there's a will there's a way


When a person really wants to do something, he will find a way of doing it




A burnt child dreads fire


A bad experience or a horrifying incident may scar one's attitude or thinking for a lifetime




First come, first served


The first in line will be attended to first




A friend in need is a friend indeed


A friend who helps when one is in trouble is a real friend




Discretion is the better part of valor

 


If you say discretion is the better part of valor, you mean that avoiding a dangerous or unpleasant situation is sometimes the most sensible thing to do




A hungry man is an angry man


A person who does not get what he wants or needs is a frustrated person and will be easily provoked to rage




Empty vessels make the most noise


Those people who have a little knowledge usually talk the most and make the greatest fuss




A man is as old as he feels


A person's age is immaterial - it is only when he thinks and feels that he is ageing that he actually becomes old




Great talkers are little doers


Those people who talk a lot and are always teaching others usually do not do much work




An idle brain is the devil's workshop


One who has nothing to do will be tempted to do many mischievous acts




An ounce of discretion is worth a pound of wit


It is better to be careful and discrete than to be clever




Faint heart never won fair lady


To succeed in life one must have the courage to pursue what he wants




A penny saved is a penny gained


By being thrifty one will be able to save up




A rolling stone gathers no moss

 


A person who never settles in one place or who often changes his job will not succeed in life ; one who is always changing his mind will never get anything done




As you sow, so you shall reap


One will either enjoy or suffer the consequences of his earlier actions or inactions




Barking dogs seldom bite


Those who make loud threats seldom carry them out




Better late than never


To do something that is right, profitable, or good a little late is still better than not doing it at all




A bird in hand is worth two in the bush

 


Something that one already has is better than going after something seemingly more worthwhile that one may not be able to get




Birds of a feather flock together


People of the same sort of character or belief always go together




Call a spade a spade

 


If you say that someone calls a spade a spade, you mean that they speak frankly and directly, often about embarrassing or unpleasant subjects; an informal expression




Charity begins at home


A person's first obligation should be to help the member of his own family before he can begin thinking of talking about helping others




Dead men tell no lies

 


 often used as an argument for killing someone whose knowledge of a secret may cause one loss or get into serious trouble




A great talker is a great liar


A smooth and persuasive talker may be a good liar




Every cloud has a silver lining

 


If you say that every cloud has a silver lining, you mean that every sad or unpleasant situation has a positive side to it. If you talk about silver lining you are talking about something positive that comes out of a sad or unpleasant situation




All that glitters is not gold


Do not be deceived by things or offers that appear to be attractive




Eat to live, but do not live to eat


Man was created for a divine purpose and he has a destiny with his Creator - he was not born just to enjoy food




Don't put all your eggs in one basket


One should not risk everything he has in a single venture




Every dog has its day


Everyone will get a period of success or satisfaction during his lifetime




Every one can find fault, few can do better


It is easier to find fault in other people's actions or methods than to do it properly or correctly







Fair exchange is no robbery

 


A contract is fair as long as both the parties understand and agree to the conditions willingly; after a deal is closed neither side can turn around and say that he was unfairly treated




Fire is a good servant but a bad master





Fire, like any other manmade tool or device, will serve man well only when it is controlled and used

wisely

I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
