'You leave a pile of ironing and every time you walk passed it you do it again', I heard in relation to a dirty pan being left to soak in a kitchen sink. 'A house that doesn't see the sun, sees the doctor'. I am advised half an hour later.
'Your teeth are your pearls', my grandfather would say, who though born in 1896 had all his own teeth when he died in 1992.
Are such sayings of value?
Do they work?
