Famous Proverbs

Posted on at


We have heard many times that “Old is Gold”. Every old thing that persists with times will be valuable and precious. For examples the remaining of our predators, and we preserved all those things in museum, that gives imaginations to the people about the culture and about the things which they used in their life time. Only the remaining do not contains such type of stuffs but the old sayings, the valuable and meaningful words which they have said are also the part of remaining, which our predators experienced in their lives. Those old and valuable sayings are preserved in a written form which we gave a name of “Proverb”. Today I am going to share the old, the valuable and the precious sayings of the past people. Hopeful, you will learn a lot from the old sayings and practice it, you will experience that old sayings turned into Gold.

1.“Two wrong don’t make a right”:

A universal truth, if someone does badly with you, pardon them rather taking revenge. This is because when you do wrong or something bad the situations and things might go wrong. You have to be patience, otherwise you life become bitter.

 2.“The pen is mightier than sword”:

We can’t ignore this valuable saying, because trying to convince people by knowledge, by ideas or by good words is more effective than to compel  or convince the people by force to accept the your words, your ideas or the things you want.

 3.“No man is an island”:

It is one of the best concept and keywords to spend a purposeful life. The world is a global community, living solitude is impossible. You someone want to make his/her life meaningful, you must have best interactions with the people and helping each other because one can’t live independently. A saying is equivalent to that “Two head are better than one”.

 4.“Fortunes favors the bold”:

Life is full of struggle. One can’t ignore this bitter truth. Success follows those who do struggles boldly and bravely for their ambitions, instead of those who want to live safely.

 5.“People who live in glass houses should not throw stones”:

The idea is clear that if a person want to live a peaceful life they must not try to vitiate the others life. Another is simple saying is “Do Good, have Good”.

 6."The Early bird catches the worm”:

This saying is similar to “First come, first get”. If you wake up early in the morning and start work for your goal will be succeeded in life.

 7.“God helps those who help themselves”:

God will never turn or changed one’s life better unless and until he tries to change it. This is the concept of God which has been mentioned in the Holy Quran. Do by yourself and do not wait for the other to come and help you. We have seen in our daily life, the nations who work hard they are on the top than those who are sleeping on the camel’s back.

 8.“Cleanliness is next to godliness”:

Make habit to be clean every time, so that you will get rid of diseases. According to the sayings of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him); “Cleanliness is half faith”.

 9.“Practice makes man perfect”:

Everyone realized that when you do practice in every field success will be the part of your life and your life might be perfect.

 10.“Honesty is the best policy”:

Truth never put you in trouble. Honesty is the solutions of many problems. If someone lie, he will lie again and again to hide the lie. So if you want to live free and do not want to face problems and difficulties, then don’t lie and be honest to your profession.


These sayings realized that the old sayings are not less than gold. Adopt these universal truths and makes your life successful.
