Sayings

    I've got an English homework involving coming back with a meaningful saying. At this point you may be thinking; are you THREE? Well, life sucks and I've got to do this or face detention.

    Of course, I could think something up myself, but I have a week and I'm looking for something different; diverse; clever - with a hidden meaning. Something to make them think, a hidden meaning. Go the extra mile Wink

    A wise man speaks because he has something to say, a foolish man because he has to say something.

    One thing that my mom used to tell me when I was younger (Might apply seeing you're school aged).

    "Tis better to be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt"

    Not really a saying per say, but paraphrased from a quote by Napoleon...

    "The soldiers win the battle, but the generals get the credit..."

    So far my favorite is:

    Nobody listens, everybody just waits for their turn to speak.

    "'Sayings' are but simple one-liner opiates for saeculum imprudentissimus. The illuminati refuses to apply any form of reducto ad absurdum logic to the ways and means of our society, real life is too complicated to \sum_{n=0}^\infty." - W3bbo, 2007

    Ha! Take that, Oscar Wilde!

    You have not pushed far enough unless you've been threatned, if you're dead then you have gone too far.

    Give a man a fire and he will be warm for a night. Set him on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

    What if the fire was extinguished immediately (when the man was set on fire), and he was placed in a chilled room? (This might cause a problem in this saying).

    My gramps used to have some 'colorful' sayings, and I doubt that you can use this one, but...


    "Nothing is more overrated than a good f*ck.  Nothing is more underrated than a good sh!t"

    It isn't very PC, but it always cracked me up.

    Shall we start picking apart all of the sayings? Tongue Out

    This saying assumes that you are concerned with doing things right. A properly lit fire should not go out easily. [6]
