  2. Knowledge is power – or – Ignorance is bliss
  3. Look before you leap – or – He who hesitates is lost
  4. Beware of Greeks bearing gifts – or – Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth
  5. Nothing ventured, nothing gained – or – Better safe than sorry
  6. The only thing constant is change – or – The more things change, the more they stay the same
  7. Many hands make light work – or – Too many cooks spoil the broth
  8. Great minds think alike – or – Fools seldom differ
  9. The bigger, the better – or – The best things come in small packages

  3. They are superb. Love those.
    What will be, will be – or – Life is what you make it.
    Life is definitely what you make it. We have a choice.
