Say what you mean

Or mean what you say? I was surfing at lunch and started thinking about a radio show I listened to this weekend--they were joking about the old sayings that their grandmother used. Here's a few I found-I think many of them still apply today.

~You can fool people some of the time, but you can't fool them all of the time. - Aesop
~You can't fit a square peg in a round hole
~You can't sew buttons on your neighbor's mouth. - Russian
~Butter wouldn't melt in her mouth
~A job worth doing is worth doing well
~Warm the cockles of the heart
~Beware of burning your bridges when you cross them
~A man is known by the company he keeps
~Busier than a one armed paper hanger
~A place for everything and everything in its place
~A tree is know best by it's fruit
~Cattywampus or caddywampus
~Actions speak louder than words
~After all is said and done, usually more is said than done

Got any good ones your grandparents used???

Later gators...
