It is better to wear out than to rust out.

Meaning:

  • This proverb means that it is better to remain active and wear out until you die than to do nothing just because you are old.


Example sentence:

My grandmother can barely walk but she keeps doing all the housework herself even though she doesn't have to. She always says: 'It is better to wear out than to rust out'.


Questions for you to answer:

  1. Would you agree that elderly people should remain active or should they finally take a rest at a certain age?
  2. Why do objects rust at all?
  3. What happens to people when they 'rust out'?
