PROVERBS


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.

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 issometimes 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 torage.

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 becomesold.

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
