I always thought the term Common  Sense was not common at all.  An oxymoron if you want to call it that. 
It is interesting to hear old terms that are not in use today but at one time rang true.
I also enjoy hearing old phrases that were used.  Example...when I wished or wanted something that was nigh unto impossible my Grandma would say..."If wishes were horses beggars would ride"... I did not understand it much then but it makes sense to me now. 
I will be reading with great interest in what other gems people leave.

I had to laugh when I read " Don't count your chickens before they hatch"   My grandmother always said " Don't count your chickens with a hatchet"
