Company, Complaint, Compromise,
Conceit & Confidence : Proverbs
Key-Words Based Proverbs
A man is known by the company he keeps.
As a man is, so his company.
Good company upon the road is the shortest cut.
Two is company, three is crowd.
Better be alone than in bad company.
Complaints are lies in court clothes.
He complains wrongfully of the sea that twice suffers shipwreck.
To have a crow to pluck with someone.
Better bend than break.
Compromise anything for a quiet life.
To run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.
Great braggers, little doers.
They can do least who boast loudest.
There is no such flatterer as a man's self.
Men love to hear well of themselves.
Every bird loves to hear himself sing.
Never be boastful, someone may pass who know you as a child.
Between you and me and the post.
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
Confidence carries conviction.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
Confidence is a plant of slow growth.
