I say , I say I say………


As I go about my day-to-day chores, I find I stumble across little sayings and quotes that seem to resonate with me. Maybe it’s only because of what’s happening at the time or maybe its because they tickle me, but I thought I would share a few of my recent ones with you.

Have you any sayings that have tickled you? Do tell……

Simon X


“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember what you now have was once among the things only hoped for”


“If you know how to do ten things well, but only ever do three things, pretty soon you’ll only know how to do three things well”

Don MacLean

“A thing it is not true just because no one has questioned it”

Melvyn Bragg

“Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care”


“There is no right way to do the wrong thing!”


“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”

    Hi Simon,

    I love proverbs and their origins. I’m a fan of this one …’ships are safe in the harbour, but then that’s not what ships were made for’
