    Aphorism

    What is this suppose to be?


    Keep your gun but give the bullets to your enemy.

    The enemy can't be trusted.
    But why do we want to give them bullets at all?

    Thank you for your help.

    I have never heard that saying. Frankly, it doesn't make much sense to me. I wouldn't want my enemy to have the bullets to my gun. Puzzling.

    Re: Aphorism

    Thank you very much, RonBee.

    And what about this one, please, anybody.
    It is the duty of all men to speak up when not confronted by careless music

    Thank you.

    Re: Aphorism

    Can you please explain this one?

    A table may have a flat top but its legs lead downward.

    Thank you.

    Re: Aphorism

    Are those aphorisms either American or British? Where do they come from?

    Why would someone speak up because he is not confronted by something?

    Re: Aphorism

    I've never come across them in the UK. Are they quotes?
