PROVERBS FOR OUR TIME (WHATEVER TIME THAT MAY BE)

l. Let bygones be bygones – and what kind of

     History would that get you?

 2. Haste makes waste, but every other activity

     makes waste too.

3. When poverty comes in at the door, love

    flies out the window. Many persons who

    are living in poverty, however, have neither

    windows nor doors.

4. No need to look for a needle in a haystack

    when you can buy all the needles you want

    over the internet.

5.  Your heart may be free as an eagle, but there

      are no federal laws protecting your heart.

6. A stitch in time saves nine, but it takes more

   than one stitch to sew up a wound.

7. A fool and his money are soon parted, but how

    did the fool get money in the first place.
