This is one of fifty-two expressions in The Illustrated Book of Sayings! Quite honestly, I was struggling for any sort of inspiration when it came to posting something on the blog (are blogs becoming sort of redundant these days? is the process too slow when compared to things like Instagram? are people other than me forgetting to attend to them? who remembers to blog everyday? are there really people who achieve that?) but then I thought GOSH I HAVE A BOOK so posting an illustration from there seemed like a reasonable idea.
