I am studying the Book of Proverbs in my class on Wisdom Literature. For one of the assignments, I am to compile a list of modern proverbs from my family, friends and acquaintances. These can be any kind of mom-isms or words of wisdom that are thrown around--words to grow on that you may have grown up on.
We know some familiar Ben Franklin-ish ones, like:
A penny saved is a penny earned.
Early to bed, early to rise, makes a person healthy, wealthy and wise.
A stitch, in time, saves nine.
Can you think of any more? Are there modern ones you grew up with that you would be like to share?
