How does a saying become popular? Over the years we have all heard them, some more than others, some last forever, some fade away quickly. There are certain individuals that use them constantly, my favourite is Dr. Phil, I call them Dr Philisms, my mother in law has always been known for having some great ones as well.
My absolute favourite, which I repeat constantly is 'What I save on the banana's I can spend on the grapes', I think it is supposed to be 'What I save on the oranges I can spend on the coconuts', but I've never wanted to buy a coconut. To me it means if I can buy one thing at a really great price, it allows me to spend a little more on something else.
How many people have to say it before it becomes popular? How much of an influence does the media have?
Here are some more of my favourites:
People treat you how you let them,
At the end of the day,
YEPPPPPP, (thanks Storage Wars)
If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got,
A penny saved is a penny earned,
When you know better, you do better
If I was any more efficient, there would be two of me,
A women must be naked, if she doesn't feel luscious,
See the bigger picture
Where's the beef?
Here's the skinny,
Stick in the mud,
Straw that broke the camel's back,
Pick your battles,
People who are bored, are usually boring people,
Opinions are like asses, everyone's got one
Life is a journey, not a destination
Dance like no one is watching.
