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

Great! I especially like the last one. It is sort of the reverse of a quip by Jonathan Swift that was something like..." A true  genius can always be recognized by seeing all the the dunces in confederacy against him". John Kennedy Toole took the title to his Pulitzer prize novel, " A Confederacy of Dunces" about a New Orleans "character" and his associates from Swift's quote. Good book.
