For every proverb saying one thing, sometimes there's another proverb saying the opposite. If there's one thing these Proverbial Opposites prove it's that "It's a poor rule that won't work both ways!"

Find the Proverbial Opposite of a maxim below.

think

= 1. Fine feathers do not make fine birds
= 2. Many hands make light work
= 3. Enough is as good as a feast
= 4. It is never too late to mend
= 5. Hitch your wagon to a star
= 6. Out of sight, out of mind
= 7. Nothing ventured, nothing gained
= 8. The best things in life are free
= 9. Poverty is no sin
= 10. Birds of a feather flock together
= 11. Look before you leap
= 12. You can't teach an old dog new tricks
= 13. Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise

11. He who hesitates is lost.
