    You get up and keep trying.
    George Washington is known for his wise sayings.
    Aphorism Examples in Everyday Speech
    It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
    It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
    Then use it as a guideline to stay focused on your general theme.
    Too many times to count, right.
    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
    This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
    Michael Corleone from The Godfather II disagreed with that.
    Life is too short to surround yourself with toxic people.
    It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    And get this.
    They’re in social media captions all over the web.

    Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.
    So what do you do.
    It’s become one of the most viral memes on the internet.
    This aphorism is short and sweet, but it teaches us a valuable truth.
    Other Common Examples of Aphorisms
    Why is this stuff important.
    Build a storyline around that saying.
    Curiosity killed the cat.
    Now that we’ve covered the aphorism definition, are you ready for more examples.
    The original dictum said, A penny spar’d is twice got, but it’s adapted over the years for modern English.
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    Aphorism Examples in Everyday Speech
    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    Now you might be asking.
    So my advice.
    That’s why aphorisms, adages, and proverbs are synonyms for each other.

    Your wish is my command.
    Because let’s face it, perseverance is the key to success in life.
    Examples of Aphorism in Politics
    This aphorism is short and sweet, but it teaches us a valuable truth.
    Sometimes, though.
    Aphorisms state universal truths about life that encourage reflection.
    Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.
    How many times have you heard one of the following aphorism examples.
    We see this in literature all the time.
    It’s better safe than sorry, right.
    You create them.
    Like George Washington, Sandys believed that telling the truth is always the way to go.
    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    (I say these words to make me glad),
    You’re prepared to use these handy little sayings to make your prose more relatable.
    Now here’s the big question.
