OLD SAYINGS.


Every cloud has a silver lining.
Never count your chickens till they hatch.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away an onion a day keeps everyone away.
As dead as a doornail.
A stitch in time saves nine.
Would love to hear what your grandparent's use to say.

Re: OLD SAYINGS.


The early bird catches the worm
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
If you haven't got something nice to say then don't say anything
The sun will still rise tomorrow
Tomorrow is a new day
Don't go to bed angry
To err is human, to forgive is divine

I'm sure I'll think of others as soon as I post this!

Re: OLD SAYINGS.


Eaton, shouldn't that be "Children should be seen and not heard"?

Others I thought of overnight:

Don't get your knickers in a twist
Let sleeping dogs lie
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush (still don't really get this one)
It's raining cats and dogs
To kill two birds with one stone
Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
Don't judge a book by its cover
Life is full of ups and downs
The only things that are certain in life are death and taxes
The only constant is change
You won't know if you can do something unless you try
You need to learn how to fail

And the old classic
You children don't know how lucky you are!!

Sorry, got a bit carried away there!!

Re: OLD SAYINGS.


If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's yours. But if it doesn't, it never was.

If life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

A fool and his money are soon parted.


Oh, and Lisa Luna, that "bird in the hand" saying is about how you should be grateful for what you have and not try to get more, or you may lose what you already have. In second? grade we had to thoroughly analyze this in a story about a dog. emoticon

Look before you leap
All that glisters isn't gold
Never buy a pig in a poke
and Short arms and long pockets

Oh and there is always
Ne'er shed a clout before May is out.
With the weather being so cold at the moment I can relate to that.

Re: OLD SAYINGS.


The older the fiddle the sweeter the tune.
If you lie down with dogs you rise with fleas
A wild goose never reared a tame goosling.
As the old rooster crows the young rooster learns.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
A narrow neck keeps the bottle from being emptied in one swig.
What goes in sober comes out drunk.
Its for her own good a cat purrs.
To a raven her chicks are bright.
Its no good carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking.
A silent mouth is sweet to hear.
If you cant say something nice don't say nothing at all.
Its a long road that has no turns.
A shut mouth catches no flies.
Spare the rod spoil the child.
Waste not want not.
Never cry over spilt milk.
A good word never hurt anyone.
A dumb priest never got a parish
