Make Hay, While.....
1 Apr 07
Thinking that there are a lot of other old proverbs that are still in use even up to now, I do think that this one still counts as a valid way to say: Strike the Iron while it's hot. They both suggest that people should do the things when they have the chance to do it or perhaps to advise them to 'not procrastinate'. This one is also closely tied up with the saying: 'Opportunity Only Knocks Once' since the idea that the sun for only a limited time imposes the concept that it is better to take advantage of the opportunity to dry the grass.

"Make hay, while the sun shines" is still applicable today even though technology does make it more difficult. Not all ideas have been spent and new technologies does bring about new oppurtunities. All you need to do is take that idea and MAKE your HAY as fast as possible, as best as possible because the SUN does not SHINE too long in the present times!
