The Saturday Post Group #2 : Zharia Harris, Diamond Ellison, Emileigh Swords, Jaylin Hall A maxim is a statement expressing the truth or a rule of conduct. Maxims are a way of repetition which helps embed lessons and goals in life to help us know how to react or overact to society and the many items within it. In the text, Bobby’s mom uses the maxims, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”(60), “early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise”(61), “the early bird gets the worm”(61), “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”(62). Buddy’s mom uses several maxims that we as a group have heard at least once in our lifetime. The maxims that we have heard which are involved in the reading are, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and “the early bird gets the worm”.
