Aphorisms

–  Aphorisms  –

An aphorism is essentially a “Saying” which is used primarily to convey some bit of wisdom or advice.  They are quite often related to some subject of life, are often repeated by many people over a number of years (which is why they are often referred to as “Sayings”) and they usually come in various forms depending on where one (who is saying the aphorism) comes from or what social or cultural group it is being used in.
