10 Timeless Conventional Wisdoms

1. "Honesty is the best policy"

Being honest builds trust and respect with others, and it often leads to the best outcomes in the long run.

2. "Patience is a virtue"

Good things come to those who wait. Instead of rushing things, it's often better to give them time to develop naturally.

3. "Actions speak louder than words"

Rather than relying on what people say, it's often more important to look at what they do.

4. "Respect is earned, not given"

Respect comes from proving oneself through actions, not just from holding a particular position or title.

5. "Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise"

This saying emphasizes the importance of a good night's sleep and an early start to the day.

6. "Practice makes perfect"

The more you do something, the better you get at it. Although, Perfection is an asymptotic pursuit. I like the version "Practice leads to mastery" or as a loved one puts it, "Practice makes progress"

7. "Don't count your chickens before they hatch"

Don't rely on future possibilities as certainties.

8. "You can't judge a book by its cover"

Outward appearances often do not reflect the true nature of things.

Taking early action often leads to success.
