    I have written a small script which produces random phrases from the beginnings and endings of proverbs. Some are hilarious, some are just dull. But I have included a way to optionally “qualify” the output.

    This thread makes me look up the list of those examples that I once found worth keeping, so “here are the results of the jury”:

    • The best way to a man's heart is another man's treasure.
    • Children tell no tales.
    • People who live in glass houses have ears.
    • The pen is power.
    • A bad settlement is least heeded.
    • Children are doomed to repeat it.
    • All cats have ears.
    • Children die young.
    • God is my friend.
    • Good fences were meant to be broken.
    • Barking dogs are doomed to repeat it.
    • Beggars shouldn't throw stones.
