Proverbs, platitudes, dicta, apothegms, bromides, clichés… everyone knows a few. Maybe too many.

Old saying — "there's no accounting for tastes".

It's true. For instance, some people think jellied electric eel is gourmet fare. To me it's just a shock an' some goo.

What wisdoms say you? Or your favorite aunty, or a random radio host, or that guy on the street corner?

One of my father-in-law’s favorites was:

“A bank is a place that will lend you money, if you can prove that you don’t need it.”
