If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. Or you may create a problem out of nothing at all. Can you imagine if that something was perfectly fine and working well and then someone comes along and ‘fixes’ it for it to work even better, however he had only made it worse than before.
Now you wouldn’t want that, would you?
So, don’t fix it if it ain’t broken.
Let the sleeping dogs lie. Or they may wake up from their beauty sleep and come after you for disturbing them.
Do not bring trouble upon yourself by disturbing others who may not like it. They would come after you for irking them.
If a dog does chase you for waking them up…well…I’d bid you good luck, but I doubt you would have time because you’d ought to be running a whole a lot faster!
These two proverbs complement each other as one warns you about not messing up what is already perfect and the other warns you about not creating trouble upon yourself. They have similar means and motive.
So I do hope you don’t wake that dog and do leave it alone!
