Proverbs have a deep meaning and if we analyze them we can decipher their meaning This proverb literally means that a small tear in a cloth or garment can be corrected or remedied if attended to in time But if ignored this small tear may widen leading to more work or the garment may have to be discarded In this manner this proverb warns us against neglecting small faults or imperfections which may lead to big troubles Time waits for no one so we should never put off till tomorrow something which can be done today Opportunity knocks on our door but once and if we fail to open the door in time we will lose out on success We should remain ever vigilant for even a little neglect may spell great ruin A small crack in a dam may lead to a breach in the dam and the flooding of the area around In the same way if a student neglects his or her studies all the learning will have to be done on the day before the test or the exam and this will probably lead to bad results The following verse emphasizes the importance of timely action - For the want of a nail the shoe was lost For the want of a nail the horse was lost For the want of a horse the rider was lost For the want of a rider the battle was lost In our daily life we sometimes quarrel with our friends or relatives because of some small misunderstanding if this small tiff is not cleared in time we may lose our friends or relatives Bad habits too have small and insignificant beginnings A puff of cigarette or a swig of beer may not seem serious to a teenager But these small beginnings will give excitement or kick to him
