Webster defines the word aphorism thus: --> a pithy observation that contains a general truth, such as, “if it ain't broke, don't fix it.” When I was a young girl, my grandfather always used to say "Beware the smiling dog, for he still has sharp teeth." as a warning not to give blind trust to just anyone. I always found that rather interesting and I was thinking about it the other day. There are lots of cases where there are aphorisms or pithy sayings in our lives, meant to give meaning or warnings about things. How many do we remember? Or is there one that you are particularly fond of? Please share and discuss.
