The New Cliches

The New Cliches

Cliches are phrases and ideas that get repeated so often they become trite and overused, and eventually may even lose their strength of purpose. But there is a very good reason why they become that way – why they are repeated so many times – they’re true!


Here is a list of what I call the “New Cliches.” They may not have been overused yet but believe me, they are definitely true and they deserve to be repeated.
