Cliche' or not.
Back in my earlier life as a Dale Carnegie instructor, I was very sensitive about using cliche's. Mostly, when I wanted to use them, it was because I was being too lazy to say something that really meant something.

Seth Godin has a nice blog entry about this at Seth Godin on Cliche's.
