BS Ladies Favorite Adages

An adage (pronounced /ˈædɨdʒ/), or adagium (Latin), is a short but memorable saying which holds some important fact of experience that is considered true by many people, or that has gained some credibility through its long use.

Beggars can’t be choosers

Dollars to Donuts

killing two birds with one stone

going to hell in a handbasket

til the cows come home

Pennies make dimes and dimes make dollars.

Only the good die young.

Be careful what you wish for.

Never say never.

If the shoe fits wear it.

If something can’t go on forever one day it will stop

if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen

like a bat out of hell

like putting the cart before the horse

A rolling stone gathers no moss.

A watched pot never boils.

One in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.

That’s like robbing Peter to pay Paul.

The grass is always greener on the other side.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.

No news is good news.

When taking a pill, always read the bottle.

Sooner is better than later.

got more??
