Quotes and opposite quotes: Two sides of the same coinMost of us are attracted towards quotes that are inspirational, motivating, encouraging, philosophical etc. Some of us use it as a mail footnote too. But did you realise that there are many quotes that (on the same topic) contradict each other. For instance
Don't burn your bridges Vs Burn every bridge so that there is no going back.
The early bird always gets the worm Vs The second mouse gets the cheese ( the first one gets caught in the mouse trap).
Attack is the best form of defence Vs Discretion is the better part of valour.
The more the merrier Vs Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Silence is golden Vs The crying baby always get the milk.
There would be many more, you are welcome to add on. I think, if someone wants to be smart and uses a quote to make an point, then he/she should also remember that a counter quote can be made by the opposite person too.
