The Book of Clichés is here thanks to the inspiring enthusiasm of my good irc-friend Creamsicl.
The Book of Clichés lists phrases to say in times of trouble in a number of categories. It all started when I was in an unpleasant situation for a while, and found myself saying things like listed here, apparently in order to convince myself of something. I was not sure if it helped, but I realized that there are phrases for most of the painful situations. So I put some of them together and published them on my website.
Since The Book of Clichés first appeared on the internet in late 1996, it has grown into one of the classic cliché-sites and has won numerous internet awards.
Many people have contributed by sending me clichés. Thank you all. Look here for a list of contributors.
