The subject line specifies two sayings in a family of sayings. I
received a request to explore this family back in 2016. One of the
sayings was mentioned on this list in January 2017, and other sayings
were mentioned a few days ago.

Here is a link to my analysis:

Great thanks to Steve Wilkerson whose inquiry led QI to formulate this
question and perform this exploration. Thanks to discussants Laurence
Horn, Wilson Gray, Jonathan Lighter, Andy Bach, and others.
