Proverbs and What They Mean

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
Going where? Oh you mean away from the problem?

Well begun is half done
And who's going to do the rest of it?

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
What about when it poops?

A barking dog never bites
Do dogs know this?

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise
And a party pooper

Honesty is the best policy
Must try saying this to the insurance agents

Don't bite the hand that feeds
And the hand that's dirty. While on the subject of hands and bites, just don't do it at all

H complains that my quality of writing is coming down. To her and others who feel that - wait baby wait, till my project gets over, then I promise deliver on my blog. :-)

And on a totally unrelated note, me completed a year of corporate life today! :-)

Nice collection. Agree completely with the "tough running away" and "dogs biting part".
