Links 1 through 1 of 1 by Alex Barnett tagged adages

My Favorite...Barnett's Law (not listed): It doesn't matter how many "adages" one tries to coin, an "adage" will never be listed by force, since "adages" only become "adages" organically, and never through conscious means. Barnett's Law proves this.

This list of eponymous laws provides links to articles on laws, adages, and other succinct observations or predictions named after a person. In some cases the person named has coined the law — such as Parkinson's law. In others, the work or publications of the individual have led to the law being so named — as is the case with Moore's law. There are also laws ascribed to individuals by others, such as Murphy's law; or given eponymous names despite the absence of the named person.
