Wisdom of the ages leads to modern day confusion? By Santwana Korada

Slide 2: 

5-Sep-10 2 Proverbs encompass wisdom of the ages, it is a short sentence drawn from long experience. However I don't blame humans for being a confused lot after this:- 1  Look before you leap --  He who hesitates is lost    2  More haste less speed  -- Time waits for no man    3 Absence makes the heart grow fonder --  Out of sight, out of mind    4 Two heads are better than one---   Paddle your own canoe    5 A word to the wise is sufficient ---  Talk is cheap    6 Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today --  Don't cross the bridge until you come to it    7  You're never too old to learn ---  You can't teach an old dog new tricks    8  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again --  Don't beat your head against a brick wall  9  It's better to be safe than sorry ---  Nothing ventured, nothing gained    10  Don't look a gift horse in the mouth ---  Beware of Greeks bearing gifts    11  Do unto others as you would have others do unto you---   Nice guys finish last    12 Hitch your wagon to a star  --- Don't bite off more than you can chew    13  Many hands make light work ---  Too many cooks spoil the broth    14  Don't judge a book by its cover ---  Clothes make the man Santwana Korada

We use proverbs to make our point more attractive and emphatic....basically to stand out and to be different. But in today’s world where we tend to question everything, isn’t it high time to lay the controversial proverbs to rest with dignity, after them having served humanity for eons ?? Or is it that we so love to use them for our convenience that the by-product of confusion is voluntarily overlooked by us? 5-Sep-10 Santwana Korada 4
