"It is better to be the hammer than the anvil. "

The original meaning of this comparison was that it is better to be the anvil: the hammer eventually wears out and breaks, but the anvil never does.

Yep! There's lots of stuff out there 'bout hammers but not much on anvils . . .

Nope! "I'd rather be an anvil than a hammer, yes I would..." wouldn't do so well either!

Hm. I always that the comparison was to the hammer and the nail.

I'm a detail sander and when I grow up I want to be an asphalt cold planer.

I'm with oddcouple. The saying is that it's better to be the hammer than the nail. If it's between the hammer and the anvil, I'll pick anvil every time.

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail. Yes I would. If I could, I surely would.
