Transcript of Cliches

Bibliography A hackneyed phrase or opinion Time heals all wounds Origin Originating in the 19C, ‘cliché' was derived from the French ‘clicher' which literally means ‘stereotype’ – that is, ‘print from a plate made by making a type-metal cast from a mould of a printing surface’(Foster, 2008) The first man to compare the cheeks of a young woman to a rose was obviously a poet; the first to repeat it was possibly an idiot (Cabanne 1987)
Salvador Dali
