DS - this sentence cliche?

Postby silly101 » Sun Oct 31, 2010 3:02 pm

Writing a DS

I have this sentence:

The statement that “life is short” rings true, however cliché and trite, and I am continually grateful for these opportunities.


The idea works with the topic of my DS. But is it too cliche/trite/lame to include this sentence in my DS? I want to somehow still get the idea across

It's hard to say without context, but I don't see why you couldn't just cut the first half.

"I am continually grateful for these opportunities." Sounds fine.
