    Newton's third law states: "every action has an equal and an opposite reaction".
    So it would stand to reason that every proverb has an equal and opposite proverb.

    All good things come to those who wait BUT Time and tide wait for none

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

    Wise men think alike BUT Fools seldom differ

    The best things in life are free BUT There's no such thing as a free lunch

    Slow and steady wins the race BUT Time waits for none

    Look before you leap BUT Strike while the iron is hot

    Do it well, or not at all BUT Half a loaf is better than none

    Birds of a feather flock together BUT Opposites attract

    Don't cross your bridges before you come to them BUT Forewarned is forearmed

    Doubt is the beginning of wisdom BUT Faith will move mountains

    Great starts make great finishes BUT It isn't over till it's over

    Practice makes perfect BUT All work and no play makes jack a dull boy

    Silence is golden BUT The squeaky wheel gets the grease

    You're never too old to learn BUT You can't teach an old dog new tricks

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander BUT One man's meat is another man's poison

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

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

    Hold fast to the words of your ancestors BUT Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them
