What is this? A copy and paste posting from another website?

It might have been of more value to include the original phrase from the Bible perhaps in order to connect the original saying with the modern proverb.

The concept is interesting, but in practice it might have been better to explore a few of these in more detail rather than simply copy and paste a long list and leave it at that.
A number of those are actually from Poor Richards almanac, not the Bible. And I think I recognized one or two as the words of the immortal Bard.

But why do we need some official board to certify their truth? Most of them you can see the truth of right away because they are mostly based on common sense - they are simply and catchy worded ways of reminding ourselves of things we should be able to figure out on our own anyway.

Besides, they are free advice, and one should always remember: You get what you pay for.
