Proverbs Proverbs Presentation Transcript

  • TIME PROVERBS & SAYINGS
  • TIME PROVERBS Something that you say in order to tell someone that if they want to be successful they should do something as soon as possible. The early bird catches the worm.
  • TIME PROVERBS You use this proverb to say that it is better to spend a little time to deal with problems or act right now than wait. If you wait until late, things will get worse, and it will take much longer to deal with them.  A stitch in time saves nine.
  • TIME PROVERBS This means that you should wait until you know whether something has produced the results you desire, rather than acting beforehand.  Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.
  • TIME PROVERBS If you have an opportunity to do something, do it before the opportunity expires. Make hay while the sun shines.
  • TIME PROVERBS  Something you are waiting for will not happen while you are concentrating on it.  A watched pot will never boil.
  • TIME PROVERBS When no one in authority is present, the subordinates can do as they please.  When the cat’s away the mice will play.
  • TIME PROVERBS Something that you say in order to tell someone that you will not worry about a possible problem but will deal with it if it happens. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
  • TIME PROVERBS Said to emphasize that it is not useful feeling sorry about something which has already happened. It’s no use crying over spilt milk.
  • TIME PROVERBS To do something immediately while you have a good chance of achieving success You may not get a better offer. Strike while the iron is hot.
