A Bird In The Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush


Having something that is certain is much better than taking a risk for more, because chances are you might lose everything.
This proverb refers back to mediaeval falconry where a bird in the hand (the falcon) was a valuable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush (the prey).


Bob: "I think I'm gonna quit my job..another firm is going to offer me a better job.."
Joe: "Are you sure? You probably shouldn't quit unless you know you're gonna get in for sure. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
