Modern Sayings

There are many short, wise sayings that have become popular over the years. But whether they are related to sewing or farming, not as many people relate to them as they used to. So they should be updated.

Here is my attempt at updating some of these proverbs to be a bit more modern, whilst still retaining at least some of their meaning.

  • A text in time saves nine.
  • A text of prevention is worth a phone call of cure.
  • A watched web page never loads.
  • An app a day keeps the doctor away.
  • Let whoever is without sin post the first tweet.
  • Don’t count your likes before they’re clicked.

Any other sayings that need updating?

I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old

Psalm 78:2
