A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but not as perilous as a lot of stupidity in high places. Blood is thicker than water unless the water is from Flint. If you’re as busy as a bee you’re probably not dead as a door nail. Behind every great woman is a great man behind the eight ball. Don’t jump the gun when the jury’s still out. Poetic justice is far mightier than the powers that be. If you’re a chip off the old block of someone with a chip on their shoulder then your deus ex machina will probably make no bones about spilling the milk of human kindness and not crying about it. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks unless you’re barking up the wrong tree, in which case all bets are off.
