Who Said It?
The Bible, Shakespeare, or Other

1. Like mother, like daughter.
2. When an enemy puts his arm around your shoulder – watch out!
3. Don’t believe everything you hear.
4. Sensible people think before they act.
5. By the skin of your teeth.
6. Comfort me with apples for I am sick with love.
7. Oh, that mine eyes were a fountain of tears.
8. All is vanity.
9. Man is born unto trouble.
10. Every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
(Sorry….no room for the answers….speak to the Pastor!)

If you find yourself a bit irritated or overwhelmed, it’s a sign that you’re spending less time with God and more time with this world.
