    Old-Timey Sayins' and Their Origins....

    I was thinking of an old black fellow I used to work with several years ago and he used a phrase to enlighten me to wit:
    "Not evey shut eye is asleep."

    It makes a great deal of sense. As most addages intend.

    I also paid attention to my grandparents conversations when they thought that I was too young to understand......

    What sayings do you know and where did you hear it?

    The wisdom, experiences and legacy of us old folks can surely provide "leaming" examples to our youth.....

    My Best,
    Scott

    I remember from my Mom:


    "Waste not, want not."

    "Cleanliness is next to Godliness."

    "You'll clean your room or git a whippin'."

    Best,
    Scott



    PS. I still Love and revere my Mom though she has passed over 10 years ago.
    The wisdom of her many sayings prove themselves daily....

    My Grandpa would say:

    "Learn to don't" <-- I still think it's clever. This mean don't be a butthead.

    German grandmother would say in German "noktis lachen pulkus weinen" I don't speak or type german, so this phonetic. It mean "first you laugh, then you cry". It rang true to me as a snot nosed brat. If you get all wound up and wild, it would be great fun. But with the gets highs, come the low lows. First you laugh, then you cry. Love it!
