Don’t judge a book by its cover


I am such a geek. My Friday night has been spent trawling the internet for opposite proverbs. Why? For fun, of course! I guess this is one of those you-know-you’re-a-writer-when moments.

Here is what I have come up with:

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

Look before you leap.
He who hesitates is lost.

Clothes make the man.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Better safe than sorry.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Out of sight, out of mind.

The early bird gets the worm.
The second mouse gets the cheese.

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

I could be here until midnight…

    I’ve never even thought of this, such a clever post!

    I like “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” Vs “Better safe than sorry.”
