It’s a ridiculously annoying cliche for a reason!

More and more, I am finding myself using cliches, adages and other common turns of phrases. While none of them will ever be 100% true, a lot of them frequently are. After all, it takes a lot of saying for a sentence to become a cultural phenomenon.

For example:

  • You can drag a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.
  • This too shall pass.
  • Rome wasn’t built in a day.
  • Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
  • Quitters never win and winners never quit.

You can see that I’m taking life with a much more realistic, albeit hopeful, attitude these days.

I’m sure I have more to say about this buuut, I am tired. d=

  1. It’s true, as annoying as they are too say, they wouldn’t be repeated again and again if they were stupid.

    Those are all fantastic cliches, though! They are! Haha. I don’t use them very often, but I think they’re fun when other people use them… at least, when they’re applicable.

    My favorite though, is when people don’t use them correctly.

    You need to say them in a all wise voice.
