My Top 10 Favourite Sayings

18 Apr

I love old-fashioned sayings and proverbs.

The best ones can say so much in one snappy little line.

These are my top 10 favourites. What are yours?

  1. There’s more than one way to skin a cat.
  2. An empty vessel makes the most noise.
  3. You can take a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.
  4. Brevity is the soul of wit.
  5. Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face.
  6. If you can’t stand the heat, keep out of the kitchen.
  7. That which does not kill you can only make you stronger.
  8. Still waters run deep.
  9. I am as old as my little finger, but older than my teeth.
  10. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Why not see how many you can shoehorn into your conversations this week?
