    Default English idiom

    Does anyone know the exact equivalent in Spanish for this idiom?

    Better sure than sorry.

    Thanks for helping me!

    Thanks Mariana E. but the equivalent for "más vale pájaro en mano que cien volando" would be "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush".

    Default "Better safe than sorry..."

    Confusing "safe" and "sure": a classic!

    Me inclino mas a: "Mejor pedir perdón que pedir permiso"... (claro, depende del contexto)

    sI .. Yo también creo que tu equivalencia estuvo muy simpática David.

    Solo que para mi es mejor pedir permiso que pedir perdón (jeje)
