- Cryptic Advice - But Applicable Even Today
Like most everyone, I have received some rather strange advice through some rather cryptic, but sage advice in my life, and with the passing years, I have passed much of it along to others, including my own children, and even my grandchildren.
Some of that sage advice, and some of the sayings probably came from places I don’t even remember, but it is still appropriate for us living in the so-called modern day society of 2010, the twenty-first century since Christ Jesus walked among man on this planet earth.
1- Don’t put the cart before the horse
2- Let sleeping dogs lie
3- Look before you leap
4- A birding the hand is worth two in the bush
5- You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink
6- Still waters run deep (literally and figuratively)
7- Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house
8- There’s no use crying over spilled milk
9- A penny saved is a penny earned
10- If you lie with dogs, you will wake up with fleas
11- You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear
12- Make hay while the sun shines
13- Garbage in – Garbage out
14- The devil's in the details
And, one I coined goes as follows:
We are what we eat, and what we feed our mind and heart, we speak.
