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.😀
