Fly in the ointment (Ecclesiastes 10:1)


Bible Verse:
“As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.”
Meaning:
It is a small problem that upsets a plan or scheme, or stops something from being perfect.
Origin and Application:
When there is a fly inside a bottle of perfume, it spoils or prevents complete enjoyment of its otherwise pleasant scent.
Example:
His jumpy career history turned out to be the fly in the ointment when he applied for a job.
