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?
