They Said It...
"A stitch in time saves nine."
-- Poor Richard's Almanac
WHAT? This has got to be my least favorite quote/cliche. I appreciate the rhyme, the pentameter, even the sentiment. I love thread. LOVE thread. I just don't like this quote. Adage. Whatever. It's too ... too mathy, maybe?...
So that's why I'm using it as my first Quote of the Day/They Said It/Verbal Pause That Refreshes/Etc...I don't want to start out with really good ones and then fade to black, to medicore quotes, like "I TOLD y'all I was sick!" (on the tombstone of one of my great uncles) or "A walk's as good as a hit."
Will update later. Hope your day is useful and fun.
