The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword

Old sayings repeated time and time again get right to the point. At school I heard my share. When cousin Frankie got yanked out of line for cutting ahead, I overheard, The last shall be first and the first shall be last. In the home economics classroom, a hand printed sign under the clock read: Time will pass, will you? At sewing class with fiddly work ahead, groans were stifled with, A stitch in time saves nine. When bad words appeared on the bathroom wall, we all were told, A fool's name and fools' faces always show up in foolish places. My music teacher, in my autograph book, tossed in music notations to Don't be sharp, don't be flat, just be natural.

Mom had her share, Pretty is as pretty does, Beauty is only skin deep and To thine own self be true. At the stove, The watched pot never boils, Too many cooks spoil the broth and on the subject of boys, Why buy a cow, when milk's free?

A journey begins with a single step and you never know what seeds you're planting. The Wise Sayings Journal is not only fun, but with a saying on each page, it's sure to get your pen moving at record speed. Tell the phrases that guided you, (as cringe-worthy as they sound today,) to your journal. There's truth in them thar words.
