AN ADAGE A DAY


"A watched pot never boils," they say,
And "A stitch in time saves nine,"

"A kitty-cat has nine lives," --
"Drink no wine before drinking time,"

A thousand apples for a thousand teachers
Might keep a thousand doctors away

From a thousand schools where a thousand "Golden Rules"
Might show the wisdom of, "An adage a day."
