Look before you leap.

Riddle: Look before you leap. What is the contradictory proverb?


“Look before you leap” is an expression that is used for people who don’t act without considering the possible consequences or dangers first. So this expression probably resonates with cautious people. What does the contradictory proverb mean, exactly?


It means that one who cannot come to a decision will suffer for it, as in “I couldn’t make up my mind, and now the offer has expired.” So sometimes in life, you need to quickly make up your mind and decide or you can “miss the boat”. But maybe, people find a way in between those two approaches by sometimes being cautious and taking risks when necessary.

Answer:  He who hesitates is lost.
