Interestingly enough, it’s been a very busy week – but I don’t seem to have anything that struck a chord with me that I thought, “OH! I’m going to BLOG about that!”
I did participate in the Area Level of the International Toastmasters Speech Contest, and was rather surprised by one of the rules. I can’t quote it exactly, but it was something along the lines of, “Your speech may not be a series of one-liners and clichés.” I just found that an interesting rule. Since this is my blog, and not the speech contest – and since I don’t have anything particularly burning to be said, I CAN post a series of one-liners and clichés. Grin.
Let’s see what encouraging ones I can come up with…
- From small beginnings come great things.
- All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds of yesterday.
- If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
- When you get lemons, make lemonade.
- Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill.
- Either you sink or you swim.
- Many hands make light the work.
- For everything there is a season.
- Every cloud has a silver lining.
- Home is where the heart is.
- Great oaks from little acorns grow.
- Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.
There’s a few to get your weekend started. Have you got some good ones to add to the list?
