Don’t we all love saying things? We tend to say some things more than the others, and when we do so repeatedly it just sticks, and we call those things “sayings”. Sayings originate from some bizarre, some funny and some completely normal things that people say. When others repeat what has been said and this chain goes on, the phrase turns into a saying. In today’s digital world of hashtags and abbreviations, sayings are easy to come by. Today we have for you a list of some of the most iconic sayings of all time that would look great on your t-shirt. Some of these sayings are old, and some are brand new, so let’s get started.
