Aphorisms are a dime a dozen

A Proverbial Cento


Aphorism – nugget of knowledge,

No context given, none needed.

Can this truly be wisdom?


Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Give us this day our daily bread.

April is the cruelest month.


To everything there is a season.

I saw Satan fall like lightning.

Do as you would be done by.


Truth is stranger than it used to be.

Mountain be thrown into the sea.

If at first you don’t succeed.


A penny saved is a penny earned.

Love your neighbour as yourself.

A good man is hard to find.


Only as strong as its weakest link.

A miss is as good as a mile.

Strike while the iron is hot.


Love the Lord your God with all your strength.

A picture paints a thousand words.

Nature abhors a vacuum.


A little knowledge is dangerous.

Brevity is the soul of wit.

Actions speak louder than words.


Early to bed and early to rise.

A soft answer turns away wrath.

Leave your chickens uncounted.
