1 An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
My sister only eats her fruits and vegetables if my mom reminds her that “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
2 A hungry man is an angry man!
When I was younger, I would never ask my mother whether I could go to my friend’s house if she had not yet eaten lunch or dinner, because I knew that she would always say no if she hadn’t eaten! A hungry man is an angry man!
3 Eat to live but do not live to eat!
Once someone is overweight, they should think about eating to live, but not living to eat.
4 Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!
Most people should think about getting a side job to bring in some income, because it is hard to know if or when you will be let go from your main job. If that happens, do not come back crying to me! I told you not to put all your eggs in one basket!
5 It’s no use crying over spilt milk!
The company wants us to try to fix all the problems that we have had with our new product, but I honestly think that it’s no use crying over spilt milk! We should just move on and work on our next product.
6 One man’s meat is another man’s poison!
Ken was shocked to hear that there are people who do not like to drink bubble tea! However, he probably should have expected that because one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
7 Too many cooks spoils the broth!
Some big, successful companies such as Google have teams of only a dozen people, maximum. They call this the “two pizza principle”, that teams should be able to be fed with just two pizzas. This is because too many cooks spoils the broth, and larger teams are very difficult to manage.
8 We never miss water until the well runs dry!
Larry wished that he had appreciated his wife more when they had a good relationship. This is because ever since she decided to leave him, he had realized her worth. He never missed water until the well ran dry!
9 Do not bite off more than you can chew!
Before the semester started, I told my best friend Ruth not to bite off more than she could chew. However, she insisted, and decided to take six classes, accept a part time job, and was president of the dance club. Halfway through the semester, she was completely exhausted but she only had herself to blame.
10 Half a loaf is better than none!
Our boss will get mad at you if you have not finished your project by the deadline, but at least you can show him the progress you have made. Half a loaf is better than none!
