If it helps, I have to pick which two proverbs are similar in meaning.
These are the other ones and where I could find the meanings, I have included them as footnotes here:
A: A person without money is a bow without an arrow[H1] . B: Money is a merry fellow. C: Fine words butter no parsnips.[H2] D: Don’t try to carry water carts on both shoulders. E. The hot coal burns; the cold one blackens. [H3]
[H1]Ability requires opportunity and resources in order to show its worth.
[H2]Nothing is achieved by empty promises or flattery.
[H3]“Extremes of anything can be detrimental;” “There may be bad aspects to things that appear good.”
