Proverbs Which Contradict

Upper Intermediate

All good things come to those who wait BUT Time and tide wait for no man
Birds of a feather flock together BUT Opposites attract
Absence makes the heart grow fonder BUT Out of sight, Out of mind
Clothes make the man BUT Never judge a book by its cover
Don't cross your bridges before you come to them BUT Forewarned is forearmed
Good things come in small packages BUT The bigger the better
Great starts make great finishes BUT It ain't over 'till it's over
He who hesitates is lost BUT Act in haste, Repent at leisure
Practice makes perfect BUT All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
Silence is golden BUT The squeaky wheel gets the grease
The pen is mightier than the sword BUT Actions speak louder than words
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
Wise men think alike BUT Fools seldom differ
