How about a few quotes for today?
Said by Abraham Lincoln: "Actions speak louder than words" - I think that they can both be pretty loud; I wouldn't want to hear them in a shouting match.
An English saying: "Deeds are fruits; words are leaves" - and I would say that both eventually fall to the ground.
By William Shakespeare: "Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet." - That must have been the same cat that wanted someone else to bait his hook for him.
Washington Irving said: Great minds have purposes, others have wishes. - I have had both, so what does that make me? Schizo?
Chaucer said: Nothing ventured, nothing gained. - Yes, but everything ventured doesn't guarantee that you will not go broke.
I am going to list a few more without comments. The first four I have heard many, many times, but the last three are new to me:
A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.
A good example is the best sermon.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
A stitch in time saves nine.
Advice after mischief is like medicine after death.
Advise no one to go to war or marry.
Avoid a cure that is worse than the disease.
Now, I bet you can remember a lot more, I know I can. And of course the saying you hear on my blog all the time: Have a great day, you hear?
