Famous sayings popularized by Sam Slick, from Windsor’s own Thomas Chandler Haliburton (1796-1865):
…quick as a wink
Facts are stranger than fiction.
It’s raining cats and dogs.
…six of one, half a dozen of the other
…barking up the wrong tree
…won’t take no for an answer
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
You can’t get blood out of a stone.
This country is going to the dogs.
The early bird gets the worm.
It’s like looking for a needle in a hay stack.
Never look a gift horse in the mouth.
…a miss is as good as a mile
…mad as a hatter
