Do not Count Your Chickens Before They Are Hatched.
Do not Count Your Chickens Before They Are Hatched. :
If we think that all the eggs a hen lays will hatch and become chickens, we may be wrong. Some of the eggs may be rotten. Others may get broken or damaged. So we cannot be sure that an off will become a chick until it has hatched. Do not be too optimistic or hopeful about a favorable outcome. We may have o wait for the results. A flower and a bud are different things although it is the bud that blossoms into the beautiful flower. But until that happens, we cannot say for sure that the bud will become a flower. A naughty boy may pluck it off. Some bird might peck and damage the bud or a strong wind might blow and spoil it. So it is always wise not to lay too much hope on anything that we do until it becomes what we hope. It is good to be optimistic. But too much hoping many bring dejection. The proverb suggests that it is unwise today excess hopes on anything that we do in our day to day life.
