    Girls, you are missing the point of these sayings. You made your bed has been explained, the one about making lemonade means turn a negative into a positive. As for you can't take it with you, I believe it was meant that we shouldn't place too much importance on money or material things. Time flies when you're having fun. Look how much time we spend on QB and how time flies. I think it was said as a sarcastic remark in the first place. You must all be younger ladies.

    Totally agree.

    My mother telling us when we were crying "stop or I'll give you something to cry about".

    I'm ALREADY crying!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Maybe I'm weird but I think most sayings do make sense. I have lots of these sayings that I seem to use a lot and my DIL especially often comments on them. Also my daughters little boy often repeats them to his Mum and Dad. They lived with us for 15 months and when they moved into their new home and he would say one of nannys sayings she said it's just like having nanny here with us. I think it's cute that he does it.

    When I was little & my Mother would say that to me, I never could understand why you couldn't just break your piece of cake in half therefore having it & eating it. Yes, I was a weird kid... LOL!

    My kids used to do the same thing re my Mother (their Mimi). I always tell DH "Cliches are still around for a reason".

    The new one that I am sick of hearing is "This is a teachable moment".....
    Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.

    momisms: "time flies when you don't know what you're doing."

    "he who laughs last just doesn't get it."

    "people who live in glass houses should undress in the basement."

    "he who laughs last is worth two in the bush."

    "a rolling stone...moves."

    "pretty is as pretty does, but stupid goes all the way to the bone."

    okay. i'm not trying to make her sound unhinged--my mom just had a bit of a twist in her sense of humor...
    "life is a banquet, and most poor fools are out there, starving to death!"--"auntie mame"
