Proverbs

Proverbs are a simple, concrete, traditional saying that expresses a truth based on common sense or experience. Proverbs is often metaphorical and use formulaic language. Collectively, they form a genre of folklore.

Some proverbs exist in more than one language because people borrow them from languages and cultures with which they are in contact. In the West, the Bible and medieval Latin have played a considerable role in distributing proverbs.
