1. It is bad to have a temper, but equally bad to lose it.
2. In a dangerous situation you need to show nerve, not nerves.
3. In the UK a moot point is arguable; in the US it is not worth arguing about.
4. An ordinary person is being philosophical by not dwelling on life's difficulties; a philosopher is being philosophical by dwelling on them.
5. We should be sanguine about resolving political disputes – not sanguinary.
6. We should take pride in our achievements, but pride comes before a fall.
7. The Devil is our enemy, but Jesus told us to love our enemies.
8. It is a black day when you go into the red, but a red-letter day when you go into the black.
9. To be quite surprised is to be only moderately surprised, but to be quite amazed is to be extremely amazed.
10. A sharp denial is much the same as a blunt denial.
11. If you can't have your cake and eat it, there's no point in having it.
12. "Twelve and one" is an anagram of "eleven and two".

Jesus; "love your enemies", yet he sends his to hell?
Like your oddities.
as in we drive on parkways, but park on driveways.
