More than 500 new proverbs I created with modern themes, for your enjoyment!

Modern Proverbs is dedicated to all who love proverbs, sayings and idioms tripping off their tongues, or off the tongues of others.

If the old proverbs sometimes seem a little bit too old, then perhaps what you need is a modern proverb, designed for our age, the 21st century.

This book contains over 500 new proverbs I decided to write during the down times of many a business trip. It's amazing how inspiring it can be to stare out the window of a jet at 30,000 feet and watch huge cloud banks drift across the landscape far below.

I fell in love with proverbs and idioms around the age of ten, when I was gifted a book of proverbs by my grandmother. I dived into it, and finished it in a day or so. Those first proverbs gave me an essential weapon to fight adversity (not to mention the angst of a normal adolescence): a comeback ability second to none in my rather limited circle.
So it was fun to start with a blank page, a pen, and my memories of days gone by.

If you know someone who enjoys reading or proverbs, it could make a good gift, just as my grandmother's did to me when I was young. I hope that Modern Proverbs inspires others to create new proverbs! We could do with a few thousand more.

Excerpt

The measure of a mortgage is the tenant, not the landlord

The more buildings go up, the more profits go down

The planes of geometry fly only in the mind's eye

The poorer the politician, the prettier his principles

The poppy's seed leads to greed

The press is the highest court of appeal

The profession of the politician is as great as its funding

The race belongs to the software

The red in capitalism's veins is not blood, but losses

The respiration of yeast brings forth cheer

The revenge of the investor comes in the sale of the stock

The rich cannot thread a needle but do bend Washington their way

The right to die is a blessing to many

The riskier events, the friskier the profits

The shorter the put, the sharper should be the owner

The size of a firm is the measure of the gravity of the lawyers

The size of a man's wallet should not determine his guilt

The size of your equal rights depends on the size of your wallet

The slope of the curve could be synthetic

The speech of cannons is harsh

The speech of the mind is silence
