Garfield: It's a myth that cats are high-strung.
Garfield: There's a lot of truth in those old myths.

A distinct lack of subtlety from Jim Davis in this strip, but its point is still useful. Garfield here attempts to debunk an age-old adage and is immediately confronted by the harshness of its truth. The nature of idioms is at question here, but they have stood the test of time for good reason. While Garfield, like many of us, seeks to question or perhaps update these age old sayings, many of them still hold truth to this day. Ironic, perhaps, that this can be applied so easily to a world 40 years later. We can certainly learn and grow, but there is a fountain of wisdom to be gained by heeding the words of those who came before us.
