    Old Time Sayings

    Do any of you remember sayings from your parents or grandparents?

    My Grandmother used to say, "Not every shut eye is sleeping", or "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar", and "I've been around the teacup and know where the handle is."
    My Mom used to say, "I brought you into this world and I can sure take you out of it." Then for a combination graduation and 18th birthday gift she said, "I've carried your a$$ now for 18 years, AND nine months, time for you to hit the bricks." I loved my Mom very much....I sure miss her. Her "tough love" has been invaluable in my life to make me the man that I am.

    So, how about you? Got any good ones?

    My grandfather was a man of few words but he always said (with a Danish accent) "You got to tink!". I know this isn't a "saying", but I like it.

    Another from my Mom, "If wishes were horses, beggers would ride."
    From my Dad, "Boy, if you can't go First Class, don't go."

    Truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but, in the end, there it is.

    Re: Old Time Sayings

    There were too many to remember but Grandma always said "every dog has his day".

    Grandpa and Dads were a little too explitive to post on here but I can't even begin to tell you how many times I was told that if I didn't stop doing whatever I was doing at the time that I was "gonna get beat within an inch of my life".
