about this feature

Each day Electricka and The Muse Of Language Arts jointly present a saying. What's a saying? It's something said, especially a proverb, apothegm, maxim, adage, saw, aphorism, or other similar statement or observation. It can be a commonly understood metaphor or idiom.

Why do Electricka and The Muse Of Language Arts present sayings jointly? Because all sayings are products of the language arts. As such, Electricka considers any saying appropriate for publication on this page, whether or not the author is a linguist and no matter what its subject matter may be.

Some of the sayings presented here are not well known; but by contrast, others have become idioms or accepted social metaphors for expressing an idea; they have become ingrained in our cultures, languages, and personal mindsets.

Some sayings originated as quotations authored by an identifiable individual or other source; they have appeared in a book, speech, and under circumstances that are known. When the source of a saying and its circumstances of birth are known, they are cited here. Others have origins that are obscure because they've never been reported, they've been lost, or they've been forgotten.


about sayings
