People always say “ the proof is in the pudding.” The actual line makes much more sense: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

Kathryn Brooks, in middle english, "Cheap" means "trading" or "trading goods". So "cheap at half the price" means there is a sale, with all goods being half price.

Two of my pet peeves: “Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast”, commonly misquoted as “beast”. And “ Have your cake and eat it too”. It should be, “Eat your cake and have it too”.

Too many people also interpret "Charity begins at Home" to mean that's also where it should end!

The correct phrase from traders and barkers was cheap at twice the price.

Quote the raven, nevermore is wrong. Quoth the raven, nevermore is correct. Water water everywhere and not drop to drink is wrong. Water water everywhere nor any drop to drink is correct.

I think Juliet saying : where for art thou...is obviously saying why as she says deny thy name & a rose by any other name (etc) so clearly musing on why does he have to be a Montague (cos all the interesting men are the wrong ones love!)

I think the prase "love of money is the root of all evil" comes from Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales". He uses the word cupidity, which means precisely "love for money". greed or avarice.
