Thought 482: What are Clichés?

Clichés were no doubt once original angles on the world that have outstayed their welcome among discerning members of the public. 

Because life constantly overcomes and has to overcome itself (partly through the influence of the so-called law of diminishing returns), thoughts/ideas over-used and no longer illuminating will be interpreted as dead by said discerning individuals who will seek out or offer new angles and perspectives. 

Yet clichés offer handy short cuts and points of agreement in daily human intercourse and the value of that should not be underestimated.
