Today I learned...

... that an aphorism is a succinct statement expressing an opinion or a general truth.  An example of this is "a stitch in time saves nine".
... what the saying above actually means.  I had heard that before but never knew it meants if you fix something now while its a small problem it saves fixing a big problem later.  So true when it comes to weighloss, eh?  10 lbs is lot easier to lose than 50.

I knew what "a stitch in time saves nine" meant, but I didn't know it was an "aphorism".

So, "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" is an aphorism, too. Best to make that impression thin, than fat. That's my aphorism!
