    Interesting topic indeed Thomas. I think my favorite is ‘Read between the lines.’

    Coming to think of it, a lot of everyday phrases are cliches. This is mostly due to how frequently they are used or misused.

    “And they lived happily ever after” is mine. I can’t count the number of times I have heard it.

    All that glitters is not gold. The phrase has been used so many times that it has lost its meaning haha.

    Personally I don’t like cliches too much. However, it can be difficult to avoid them at times.

    I don’t really have a favorite cliche. I think all cliches have a bit of truth to them.

    My favorite cliche is ‘the grass is always greener on the other side.’ I have heard it so many times.

    Coffee, jazz and cigarettes. I think their union is one of the best clichés on the planet.

    My favorite cliche is to what purpose I am here for on here. It has been a wonder until I had known for myself my true purpose.

    Back when I was younger, I used the “It was a dark and stormy night” phrase in my high school essays. Some would argue that it’s been overused to death, though, but given that it used to rain a lot in past years, here in Malaysia, I couldn’t help but use it.

    These days, however, my personal catchphrase is “Ammo grants dominance over Life’s Arena,” where “ammo” can be either money, knowledge, and / or other resources. It’s true, in a way, because it’s far easier to survive Life’s trials when you’re well-equipped with a long-range weapon, as opposed to a pair of trench knives.

    Of course, perhaps I enjoy my sci-fi a wee bit too much, sometimes.

    *grins slightly…*

    No man is an ISLAND. Cliche yes but so true regardless of status or race. Even the best needs and relies on someone.

    Whatever you find yourself doing, do it with all your mind. This makes every little thing I do perfect. Making it look like it’s the last.

    Not every one you see moving or living is actually living. It’s a very deep one for me.

    You can’t really please everyone. I really can reflect with this cliché.
