Contradictory proverbs:

Credit to Srikant from my TM Club who compiled this list for one of our TM Sessions.

Contradictory proverbs:

· If at first you don't succeed, try, try again 
Don't beat your head against a brick wall

· Absence makes the heart grow fonder 
Out of sight, out of mind

· You're never too old to learn 
you can't teach an old dog new trick

· Don't judge a book by its cover 
Clothes make the man

· Birds of a feather flock together 
Opposites attract

· The pen is mightier than the sword 
Actions speak louder than words

· The squeaking wheel gets the grease 
Silence is golden

· Many hands make light work 
Too many cooks spoil the broth

· It's better to be safe than sorry 
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

And my mom added to the list :)

Practice makes a man perfect but all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
