Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

Battling the enemy from within is the greatest challenge in life; you can be your biggest supporter or your worst critic. It is not who you are that holds you back, it is who you think you are not.

On a fool’s beard, the barber learns to shave.

Nothing falls into the mouth of a sleeping lion.

To wash a donkeys tail is loss of time and soap.

After mischance everyone is wise.

The one-eyed are kings in the land of the blind.

A good lawyer is a bad neighbor.

He does a good day’s work that rids himself of a fool.

He who rides on the giant’s shoulders sees further than he who carries him.

What is learned in the cradle lasts until the grave.

One half of the world laughs at the other.

What is enough was never little.

A friend is known in the time of need.

There is no such thing as an insignificant enemy.

Too late the bird cries out when it is caught.

A fine cage won’t feed the bird.

For the last-comer the bones.

Unstringing the bow does not cure the wound.

The eagle does not hunt flies.

The tree does not fall at the first stroke.



One half of the world laughs at the other.
