I found this on a diary that I found nice, but I didn't want to buy a thing with a phrase that I don't understand... So there isn't a specific context.Please tell us where you found this, OceaneB. This is not a standard phrase. It is perhaps a reference to an old saying, which is "It's better to be safe than sorry," but it's hard to tell what the meaning is without context. So please tell us where you found it and what else was going on at the time.
