    couple of questions

    Dear teachers, could you help me out with these questions?

    1) What does this sentence mean?

    As a man thinketh

    I'm guessing it means a man is what he thinks. Am I right? Could that sentence mean something else?

    2) I am guessing, again, this sentence means someone has the capacity of getting over any situations that possibly comes up. Am I right?

    Someone always thinks on his/her feet!

    Thanks in advance for your efforts.

    1. This is not a sentence, it is a fragment of a quotation. Its meaning will depend upon its position in a larger sentence but your suggestion is plausible. A man is 'as he thinks'.

    2. Someone who thinks on their feet has quick reactions to situations.
