What's in a cliches?

Surely we have heard of one cliche in our lifetime. Question is, what is one that has stuck with you or even inspired you? or made you laugh? Like... you reap what you sow... Which had diffently played an important roll in my life. If I gossiped, someone did it to me. If I helped someone, when the time came someone help me when I was in need.

  • "What goes around comes around". I love this one. It's kind of like the reap-sow one you mentioned.
    "It's easier to catch flies with honey than vinegar". A little crude, but I think it's true that being nice usually produces better results when you're trying to get something done.
    "What's good for the goose is good for the gander".
    "You lie down with dogs, you get fleas". Reminds us to keep good company :)
    "Temptation usually comes in through a door that was deliberately left open".
    "Hoe your own row".
    "You can't have your cake and eat it too".
    "The grass may be greener on the other side, but you still have to mow it."
