Short sayings, brief insights

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.
