We start hearing these little informational nuggets when we’re children. But many of them stay with us…and we occasionally quote them.
“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”
“Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
“No man is an island.”
“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
“Better late than never.”
What do these sayings have in common? They offer advice, or they point out a common human trait.
My personal favorite is “The early bird catches the worm.” But frankly, if I caught a worm, I wouldn’t know what to do with it.
