I'm pretty sure making a cake from crumbs is preferable to being given an inch and taking a foot, but will my fresh-baked aphorism enjoy the same staying power as the tried and true? Will it survive the inevitable comparisons , or will more astute observers make the distinction that the other two sayings suggest somewhat of a more negative situation whereas mine, I hope, is, well, more hopeful? Did Mark Twain ruminate, over lemonade served a wraparound porch, over his sayings before releasing them into the world? Would he tell me I making a mountain out of a molehill?
