Motivational quotes,metaphors,cliches, and proverbs; all have come under attack by writing critics who lament their overuse.
Striving to be original is not so easy as almost everyone “steals” ideas in one way or another.
What we read influences us in the way we think and how we write.
Now , before you go away saying, “Gee, thanks for the sermon, gotta go…”
This posting is not going to dwell on much of what I stated above it is just an intro to the fact that I am about to post some proverbs.
But, because I am demented, silly , and just have way too much time on my hands….. they will be mixed up proverbs.
And with that-here we go….
1.Don’t count your chickens before you have all your ducks in a row.
2.You can lead a horse to water, but you can not teach an old dog new tricks.
3. When one door shuts fools rush in.
4. A friend in need is a friend to none.
5. If you can’t beat them let sleeping dogs lay.
6. You scratch my back and ask me no questions.
7. Once bitten talk is cheap.
8. Curiosity killed the boys who would be boys.
9. Don’t put all your eggs in the cart before looking a gift horse in the mouth.
10.Two wrongs do not make two heads better than one.
Okay how about you? Want to try mixing it up a little?
I would love to hear what you can come up with, because I am kind of silly that way.
