Aphorisms Galore!


Sometimes, users and visitors to Aphorisms Galore! feel the urge to comment on something, or even to start a discussion on a brand new topic. Sometimes, those users and visitors are living breathing human beings and not spam robots. When that happens, their messages show up here. (Some messages from spam robots may also appear from time to time, but I try to make sure they don't.)

I cannot think of a more outdated aphorism than this one. Please consider removing it from your collection, altogether! It isn't true, it isn't helpful, and could be harmful to many vulnerable females.

Very right!  ·  posted 2019 by AliciaMayson

Absolutely right - we should help other people and be kind and what-not, but never should we allow others to treat us poorly.

Maybe self knowledge is wanted here? And who has that? Worse, wouldn't it be needed in abundance?

Don't forget the rules for transplant of body parts. Everyone waits in a que, for a free donation, rich and poor alike. The surgeons will not operate on the rich man who has purchased his organ. That is not the rule in all countries.

"If I say it three times, it is true" - Lewis Carroll or Carroll Lewis. I have heard this aphorism from a minister of government in 1975 and other important people, since then. The rain happens regularly; sickness, loss of job, mortgagees sale but it is not a great secret and there is insurance - used to be called "income protection insurance"

"...make fun of you."; I don't remember anything good on TV about that but about males being inapt in the sexual act, yes. See Australian TV series of the 2000 decade: PUBERTY BLUES. About 25 seconds in one episode.
