    A first grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds.

    Don't change horses...
    until they stop running.

    bug is close.

    It's always darkest before...
    Daylight Saving Time.

    An idle mind is...

      Brilliant - and most of the answers are so much better than the originals.

    LOL I personally love the most the "blind leading blind" thing, which is so applicable to our current situation on HP, and to many other current events. I have to remember to get out of the way big_smile

    I like Love all, trust me beautiful.

    I tried to write down classic one liners in the classroom, but it was just impossible because there are so many, and I couldn't take the time to do it-- but there are some profoundly wise young 3-5 year olds. Some of my most enlightening conversations have been with young children.

    Sometimes you feel you're talking with 'old souls'. smile

    Love this!  My favorite one is:

    "Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and...
    You have to blow your nose."

    I just stuck it on my Facebook status, so I could share it others, thanks for the idea, rebekahELLE... smile

    I like the 'If you lie down with dogs, you'll...
    stink in the morning' - I think that some of our British politicians and businessmen who got way too cosy with a certain Colonel in Libya should have this on a fridge magnet and reflect on its meaning every day!

    That's why I always tell, "never-ever lie to your child, he'll know it the moment you open your mouth!" Children are so perceptive and talented, and then they grow up...
    By the way I bit so many dirty hands in my lifetime... sad
