don't you just hate it when someone uses a pithy sing-songy saying to add credence to whatever they just said? as if that makes it unargumentable?
well, I'm starting a little mini crusade (as opposed to a little large one) against pithy sayings because no matter what point you want to make, there's a pithy saying waiting just for you.
there must be a table of opposites of these, yes? I've never found it and I've been thinking about this for years.
absence makes the heart grow fonder
out of sight, out of mind
if you know where anyone has drawn up a neat table of these opposites, please do tell!
