    Too bad for our long lost Frenchman, because I love clichés and idioms and all turns of phrases. He’ll be clicking in his grave until I pass on at the very least. A well, c’est la vie. ^_^

    Loved reading that. Great facts on the origins of “cliché”. I never knew the word came from the sound printing presses make.

    “A phrase is not a cliché if you mean it deeply enough.”
    I couldn’t agree with you more.

    I didn’t know about the origin of the word cliche. I found this very interesting.
