    Proverbs are used in everyday English without much thought ever being given to their meanings or, indeed, their usefulness. This entertaining A-Z turns the spotlight on sayings that we take for granted, examining their often surprising or fascinating origins, their use and why they are true - or not. The conclusion is that most proverbs are as useful now as the day they were minted - although 'everything comes to those who wait' never was. Slightly off-mint.
