Social media has helped in the revival of quotes, proverbs and adages. Open any one of the accounts in the morning and we see many messages carrying interesting ones. To us, it may mean just words with a simplified meaning at the onset but dig a little deeper and we get its real purpose. Many of such adages have lost in time or got misrepresented in their meaning and are being considered out of time. But if we contemplate if we really know the purpose it is intended for, we may be in for a surprise.
