Bric-A-Brac

All good things come to those who wait.
BUT
Time and tide wait for no man.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
BUT
Actions speak louder than words.
You're never too old to learn.
BUT
You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Slow and steady wins the race.
BUT
Time and tide wait for no man.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.
BUT
Many hands make light work.
Birds of a feather flock together.
BUT
Opposites attract.
Doubt is the beginning of wisdom.
BUT
Faith will move mountains.
Silence is golden.
BUT
The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Wise men think alike.
BUT
Fools seldom differ.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
BUT
Out of sight, out of mind.
Look before you leap.
BUT
Strike while the iron is hot.
Hold fast to the words of your ancestors.
BUT
Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them.

How contradicting.

I'll give a couple more:

look before you leap
but
he who hesitates is lost

there's no place like home
but
the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence

Two heads are better than one
but
too many cooks spoil the broth
