Aphorisms are phrases that are thought to contain a grain of truth. Things like "a barking dog is right twice a day", "measure twice, cut months", or "a watched pot never blushes" are things that people can be said to live by every day.
What aphorisms do you live by, and how do you feel about aphorisms in general?
If I were to express an opinion on the subject, it would probably be that that aphorisms are the memetic form of a parent's wisdom.
As they say, "if you have to ask, you probably want the answer."

Well, it looks like "if at first you don't succeed, re-evaluate your definition of success."
