"old sayings"

I have always been interested in the origins of "old sayings", we use so many of them, passed down from one generation to another, yet we rarely know where they originate from, maybe if we find ourselves using one, we should do a bit of research, and post any findings :o

This harks back to the days of knights in shining armor with face-plates. Shutting your face would effectively limit speech!


This surprises me very much as I just assumed it was modern slang....................there you go, lol x
