Riddle: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. What is the contradictory proverb? Let’s look this proverb solution.
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” is said to encourage someone who has failed at something to try to do it again. It’s similar to Samuel Beckett’s famous mantra: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” It motivates a person to not give up. However, some think that it is useless to “beat your head against a brick wall.”
This means to attempt continuously and fruitlessly to accomplish some task or achieve some goal that is or seems ultimately hopeless. What is the point of trying if the task seems impossible to get through it? But it might be noteworthy to remember Edison’s famous quote: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Answer: Don’t beat your head against a brick wall.
