Cliches in the Clinch

So, I've been reading Proverbs, a bastion for cliches.  This doesn't mean cliches aren't true, just a little overused at times.  However, some verses in Proverbs could stand a little more use!  I'll let you decide which ones.  Ok.  Here's a picturesque one  from Proverbs 19 :7 " The poor are shunned by all their relatives--how much more do their friends avoide them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found."(NIV)
I use Google Alerts to find articles related to Christianity and had this pushed to my email. What do you think?  Are cliches timely shorthands or tired statements made by lazy people?  It's too hot to be too original.
