When The Bait Is Worth More Than The Fish, It’s Time To Stop Fishing – American Proverb

It’s a beautiful Saturday Morning over here in Nigeria and the weather is cool. Hope you’re all doing well wherever you are.

I’m in for fun!😀 Give the meaning of any of the proverbs. If you’re not an American, you are welcome to give the meaning as well. Have fun with it.👍❤. If you don’t have time for this, don’t worry, there’s always another Saturday.

When the bait’s worth more than the fish, it’s time to stop fishing.

Meaning: It’s time to quit investing on worthless ventures. (This applies to all works of life. No gain, no pain) Except of course you’re a charity organisation or a pain enthusiast.😀

It is bad luck to fall out of a thirteenth story window on Friday.
A whistling girl and a crowing hen never came to a good end.
Money talks — everything else walks.
If you eat a live toad first thing in the morning, nothing worse will happen all day long.
There are three faithful friends: an old wife, an old dog, and ready money.
If we blame others for our failures, then we should also give others credit for our successes.
If you are always dwelling in trouble, change your address.
If men could see the epitaphs their friends write they would believe they had gotten into the wrong grave.
A man who has both feet planted firmly in the air can be safely called a liberal.
In business partnerships and marriage partnerships, oh, the cheating that goes on.




Enjoy your day.👍🙏
