"Proverbial"

It’s always darkest before the leopard’s kiss.

Where there’s smoke there is emphasis.

A bird in the hand is bound for the stove.

The pen is no mightier than the soul.

Never underestimate the nib of corruption.

Better late than suffer the long introduction.

All work and no play is the way of the sloth.

If you can dream it bring the child the moth.

He is not wise that parrots the wise.

All that glitters has been revised.

An idle mind is a sign of  the time.

The less things change the more we doubt design.

—Poetry, January 2013

I like this AND it rhymes! That doesn't usually happen.

I like it - reminds me of Billy Collins' "Adage".

I very much enjoyed this. "All that glitters has been revised" makes particular sense to me.

It's all fun and games until someone in a glass house beats a dead horse to eat for a lifetime.

This is delightful. "Better late than suffer the long introduction" is my life's motto.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what you've got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
