Maybe (Maybe Not)

Author Robert Fulghum's list of contradictory notions he holds:

Look before you leap
He who hesitates is lost.

Two heads are better than one.
If you want something done right, do it yourself.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Better safe than sorry.

Out of sight, out of mind.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

You can't tell a book by its cover.
Clothes make the man.

Many hands make light work.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
It's never too late to learn.

Never sweat the small stuff.
God is in the details.

Trust me, I'm the teacher.
Question authority.
