The bigger, the better.


The meaning of this proverb is opposite to that of "Good things come in small packages." You use this proverb to say that if something is bigger than others, it is better.

If someone says, "The bigger, the better," he/she means that something is good because it is big.


A. Which stereo system do you want to buy?

B. This big one. It has more features, and the sound quality is better. The bigger, the better.
