Hard work never did anyone any harm. If’s not worth crying over split milk.  The early bird gets  the worm.  Live for today for tomorrow never comes.  One good turn deserves another.  The pen is mightier than the sword.  Two heads are better than one.  Youth is wasted on the young.  There’s no place like home.  No smoke without fire.  There is no time like the present.  A rolling stone gathers no moss.  Once bitten twice shy.  Knife on the floor man to the door.  Money on the floor money to the door.

My Mother was a very interesting woman.  She was extremely well read.  And, she made up her own bedtime stories for us.  We loved them so much even when we were grown up we would beg her to tell us a story.   My Mother  had a saying for almost everything.  If  she didn’t she would make one up.  Mother was very inventive.  She created fairy-tale worlds for us.  To this day I look on empty egg shells as possible fairy homes.



  1. Love reading about your Mom. I think most of us has heard 90% of those sayings and it brings back such grand memories.

    Thank you my friend

    Love Donna Hall
