HIT OR MISS.
No medicine is nice;
Senna is a medicine.
Some oysters are silent;
No silent creatures are amusing.
All wise men walk on their feet;
All unwise men walk on their hands.
"Mind your own business;
This quarrel is no business of yours."
No bridges are made of sugar;
Some bridges are picturesque.
No riddles interest me that can be solved;
All these riddles are insoluble.
John is industrious;
All industrious people are happy.
No frogs write books;
Some people use ink in writing books.
No pokers are soft;
All pillows are soft.
No antelope is ungraceful;
Graceful animals delight the eye.
Some uncles are ungenerous;
All merchants are generous.
No unhappy people chuckle;
No happy people groan.
Audible music causes vibration in the air;
Inaudible music is not worth paying for.
