Aphorisms...

The idea here is simple. Tell a story about your day today using only an aphorism. Happy, sad, sexy? Doesn't matter.

aph·o·rism
ˈafəˌrizəm
noun
a pithy observation that contains a general truth
Syn: Maxim, Proverb


I'll start.

No good deed goes unpunished.

SAW, n. A trite popular saying, or proverb. (Figurative and colloquial.) So called because it makes its way into a wooden head. Following are examples of old saws fitted with new teeth.

A penny saved is a penny to squander.
A man is known by the company that he organizes.
A bad workman quarrels with the man who calls him that.
A bird in the hand is worth what it will bring.
Better late than before anybody has invited you.
Example is better than following it.
Half a loaf is better than a whole one if there is much else.
Think twice before you speak to a friend in need.
What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do it.
Least said is soonest disavowed.
He laughs best who laughs least.
Speak of the Devil and he will hear about it.
Of two evils choose to be the least.
Strike while your employer has a big contract.
Where there’s a will there’s a won’t.

A. Bierce, Devil's Dictionary
