Let’s find out about the proverb, between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out meaning.
“Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out” is actually an old Italian proverbs.
In Italian is: “tra due e farsi guastano scarpe assai“.
This proverb is NOT by the Anglo-Irish novelist Iris Murdoch!
“Many a pair of shoe have worn out” is a metaphor, which means a lot of time has passed or wasted.
For example, many a times we tell ourselves, one day we want to do something, but unfortunately, we just put it off aside.
Time and again, we still do not get down to do it as planned. We still put it off and probably still talking about doing it (hopefully one day!).
Before we know, it is well past a couple of years now, and nothing has been done.
Yes, admit it. We all procrastinate unabashedly.
