crusadelet against pithy sayings #1

don't you just hate it when someone uses a pithy sing-songy saying to add credence to whatever they just said? as if that makes it unargumentable?

well, I'm starting a little mini crusade (as opposed to a little large one) against pithy sayings because no matter what point you want to make, there's a pithy saying waiting just for you.

there must be a table of opposites of these, yes? I've never found it and I've been thinking about this for years.

for example:

absence makes the heart grow fonder


out of sight, out of mind

if you know where anyone has drawn up a neat table of these opposites, please do tell!
