I remember one of my teachers dishing out platitudes on a seemingly daily basis then occasionally thinking what trite nonsense they were. Take go with the flow, for example. How's that going to do a salmon hoping to spawn any good? Hard work always pays off, does it? Good things come to those who wait. What utter twaddle. It's as stupid as believing the meek shall inherit the earth. Do you use platitudes? Do you hate them? Which are your favourites and least favourites?
