Subject: contempt vs. content
I just received a message from someone in Virginia who is familiar
with the expression,
"Familiarity breeds contempt,"
but has never heard,
"Familiarity breeds content."
I, who have lived primarily in the western states (CA, WA, and UT),
had only heard the "content" version. Are both versions in common
usage now or has one of us merely misheard something?
