We all use them and I'm frequently reminded how wise some of these old sayings are. One of my favourites is "put a beggar on horseback, and he'll ride to hell". Do you have any that you wish to share?

Masterbation causes blindness....
The tale states that masturbation will cause blindness (in France it is said it will cause deafness). This is not true (at least not completely) and the idea has probably been spread in order to prevent children from masturbating for religious reasons. Curiously, sperm contains quite a lot of zinc, and a serious zinc deficiency can cause a decline in vision. However, it is nearly impossible to cause a zinc deficiency through masturbating.

"You'll never get admitted to an asylum as you change your mind too much"
