Shallow Puddles

Willy Lott's CottageWe’ve recently taken out a subscription to the Spectator.
One of the joys of this magazine is the weekly competition and at the beginning of the month readers were invited to invent proverbs that sound profound but have no meaning (although if you search hard enough you can find meaning in everything). The best entries contained just the promise of profound meaning. Thus my favourite is “the shallow puddle floods no meadows”. Other enigmatic sayings to commit to memory and use again are:
When you don’t know where you are going , every route is a shortcut.
The overcoat of deceit will not deter the lizard of oblivion.
Beware the bridge that stops halfway across.
A chiropodist will not remember you by the colour of your eyes.
Watch this space for shallow puddle usage
