Aphorisms Galore!

Aphorisms Galore! is back, mostly. The site was down for about six days but is now back up. Email subscriptions to the Aphorisms of the Day are still down but I'm working on it. Meanwhile, stay calm and carry on. Thanks.


An aphorist is, of course, someone who coins aphorisms. Aphorisms Galore! has hundreds of aphorists in its collection. Some are historical, some contemporary; some are famous, some obscure. Some of them are Aphorisms Galore! users, some are not.
