Proverbs are the collective wisdom of ages and nations, frequently expressed in familiar, and sometimes in enigmatic terms. They generally contain some standard maxim, which may be referred to as a test of truth, in consequence of its having survived the fluctuations of temporary opinion. A proverb is a concise, witty and wife speech, grounded upon experience, and for the most part containing some useful instruction.
