Newton’s third law states: “every action has an equal and an opposite reaction”.

  • So it would stand to reason that every proverb has an equal and opposite proverb.
  • All good things come to those who wait BUT Time and tide wait for none
  • The pen is mightier than the sword BUT Actions speak louder than words
  • Wise men think alike BUT Fools seldom differ
  • The best things in life are free BUT there’s no such thing as a free lunch
  • Slow and steady wins the race BUT Time waits for none
  • Look before you leap BUT Strike while the iron is hot
  • Do it well, or not at all BUT Half a loaf is better than none
  • Birds of a feather flock together BUT Opposites attract
  • Don’t cross your bridges before you come to them BUT Forewarned is forearmed
  • Doubt is the beginning of wisdom BUT Faith will move mountains
  • Great starts make great finishes BUT It isn’t over till it’s over
  • Practice makes perfect BUT All work and no play makes jack a dull boy
  • Silence is golden BUT The squeaky wheel gets the grease
  • You’re never too old to learn BUT You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
  • What’s good for the goose is good for the gander BUT One man’s meat is another man’s poison
  • Absence makes the heart grow fonder BUT Out of sight, out of mind
  • Too many cooks spoil the broth BUT Many hands make light work
  • Hold fast to the words of your ancestors BUT Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them
