    Talking Two Extremes Or, Confused?

    Chris' post on the "Two Extremes" remined me of the old conflicted list.....

    Conflicting Proverbs
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    All designed to teach us a lesson, but did you ever
    notice that they're sometimes quite conflicting?

    Things like:

    Actions speak louder than words.
    - but -
    The pen is mightier than the sword.

    Look before you leap.
    - but -
    He who hesitates is lost.

    Many hands make light work.
    - but -
    Too many cooks spoil the broth.

    A silent man is a wise one.
    - but -
    A man without words is a man without thoughts.

    Clothes make the man.
    - but -
    Don't judge a book by its cover.

    It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease.
    - but -
    The nail that sticks out gets hammered.

    Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
    - but -
    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    - but -
    Better safe than sorry.

    That's great! Kinda reminds me of the "Jumbo Shrimp" book that was around years ago with all the oxymoron phrases. This is better, though.

    Good list Richard - and I have a feeling there are a boatload more too - all of course totally valid!

    English as a language has some funny quirks - most of which we hardly notice.
