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