An aphorism for each day, keeps the doctor away. Each day this week I am offering a common aphorism, some just slightly embellished – for good or ill.

Wednesday – ‘Nothing Ventured’


Nothing ventured – nothing gained,

Let that be our guiding thought;

Don’t by worries be constrained,

Nor let our dreams all come to nought;

We’ve had enough of being restrained.
