    It's interesting how old some of these famous sayings are

    I think this quote applies to what you said: "There's nothing new under the sun." Here's a test of knowledge. Where did this quote come from?
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    (Romans 6:23, WEB)

    Very good Souleman.

    Here's a book that might be of interest if you get into finding out the origins of words and phrases:

    "Why You Say It: The Fascinating Stories Behind Over 600 Everday Words and Phrases". It's by Webb Garrison. My wife bought it at Barnes and Nobles. Published by MJF books.
