Gregg Southgate , author
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Every cloud has a silver lining. Do not throw out the baby with the bathwater. On the surface these phrases seem like aimless ramblings, but they’re commonly accepted in the English language and, when used correctly, impart a distinct meaning that is generally understood by others. They are tools for communicating complex and often intangible concepts for which direct words don’t always exist. Sayings to Live Your Life By delves into a collection of metaphors, aphorisms, and idioms that litter modern English, featuring an in-depth examination of each that’s aimed at illuminating just how these strange sayings came to be and how they found a home in the lexicons of millions of people. Connections to philosophy and sociology are explored as the true value of these quirky sayings is unveiled.
