Jinns' Generally old Sayings

These are not new rules, they are older than me (whew).. pay attention:

1: Behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining*

2: A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush^

3: Don't put all your eggs in one basket#

4: Don't count your chickens before they hatch#

5: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'


* Unless the dark cloud is ink, then there may be an octopus or squid behind it.

^ Unless the bird is your own pet.

# For 4 and 5, if you put all your eggs in one basket and some fall out and break, all of your chickens aren't going to hatch.

"  The actual saying here goes: Do unto others before they do it to you..

Oh yes, another one my grandmother told me..  : You can't see the forest for the trees.. Ex.  There are blind people lost in the forest.

The End
