|A copper coin which we have the certainty|
"A copper coin which we have the certainty of obtaining, is better than a gold coin, the possession of which is doubtful."
Meaning/Explanation- Many times in life, we run behind big things which we may or may not get and meantime, we miss many opportunities to obtain certain small things. Due to this approach, we miss many small opportunities while we are busy in chasing big options. It is better to get small things in life than not getting anything.
