Interesting Words - Practice Makes Perfect

'Practice makes perfect' is the phrase we are most likely to continue using as we grow older.

(The expression topped a poll put together by the NSPCC, of words of wisdom Britons picked up in childhood and continue to use well into their older years. 

The top 10 sayings were:-
  1. Practice makes perfect.
  2. Treat others how you'd like to be treated.
  3. If at first you don't succeed try, try and try again.
  4. Manners cost nothing.
  5. You can't judge a book by its cover.
  6. Good things come to those who wait.
  7. Two wrongs don't make a right.
  8. It's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts.
  9. Never say never.
  10. There's no time like the present.
Two old wive's tales didn't make it into the top ten, but they are still in use today:-


"Eat your crusts, they'll make your hair curly." (26%)
"Eating carrots will help you see in the dark." (30%)
