Staff Picks: Favorite cliches

Cliches are everywhere, from common family sayings to those age-old beliefs. Famous ones such as “What goes around comes around,” and “All is fair in love in war,” are commonplace.  

Most of the time, we at the Scribe avoid including cliches, but now, we aim to keep our friends close and our enemies closer. 

Paul Czarnecki | Editor in Chief  

“Every rose has its thorn.” 

Abby Aldinger | Managing Editor 

“Ignorance is bliss.” 

Ellie Myers | Associate Editor 

I like “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” because it’s so weird and out of context. 

Raven Sanchez | News Editor 

I’m not sure if I have a favorite, but I use “Kill two birds with one stone” the most, I think. This is kind of awful, but my family says that one a lot because my name is Raven and my younger brother’s name is Stone. 

Tom Baker | Sports Editor 

My favorite cliche is “You can’t judge a book by its cover” because it’s the one I listen to the least. The title and cover of the book are what draw me into a new book. 

Kate Marlett | Copy Editor 

“Laughter is the best medicine” because as cheesy as it is, I’ve found it is true! 

Lexi Petri | Design Editor 

My favorite cliche is “Better safe than sorry.” Unfortunately, I find myself saying this all the time. I like to take risks sometimes, but it’s still always better to be safe than sorry.

I can only think of book cliches, but my favorite book cliche is “Dark, mysterious man meets innocent and dainty female who loves reading books.” 

Olivia Nordyke | Reporter 

I love “Time heals all wounds” and “Tragedy + Time = Comedy.”
