CLICHÉS
         Every person capable of speech, whether they know it or not, uses
         clichés (or sayings) to colour that speech. And thank goodness
         they do. English could be a dull old language to converse with if
         we didn't.

        There are stacks of clichés around and the list is added to
         continually as they are seen useful, descriptive and humorous
         where possible.  English is the vehicle they ride on for impact
         and ultimate linking.

         The list below may look fairly comprehensive because anything that
         seems large, does at first. But you can add to it quite easily with
         very little effort you'll find.  I'm not ashamed to say I use these
         and many more clichés everyday, as I dont want to be, or appear to
         be dull (its a constant battle for me!).

         Funny isn't it. Even people who dont appear to have a sense of
         humour or dislike people who do, use clichés themselves. I'd like
         to see anyone deliver any form of interesting speech without them.

         This list actually took many hours to compile to its present size
         and I hope you see some enjoyment in it.   I did compiling it....
