OLD SCOTTISH SAYINGS
We all have sayings that our Parents and Grand parents used to quote depending on the situation,for example "the devil creates work for idle hands".
You may have heard some of the sayings i write here, but they all have 1 thing in common they are all from scotland.
"Never marry for money. You can borrow it cheaper."
"They talk of my drinking but never my thirst."
"Twelve highlanders and a bagpipe make a rebellion"
"Be happy while you're living, For you're a long time dead."
"Be slow in choosing a friend, but slower in changing him. "
"Egotism is an alphabet of one letter"
" Fools look to tomorrow. Wise men use tonight."
"Get what you can and keep what you have; that's the way to get rich"
"They that will not be counselled cannot be helped"
" Willful waste makes woeful want."
Of course I couldn`t finish this hub without adding what my dad used to say to me when i was a teenager goiNg out on a Saturday night."If your not in bed by ten o'clock its time to come home"
