–  Proverbs  –

A Proverb (very similar to an Aphorism) is essentially a “Saying” which is used primarily to convey some bit of wisdom or advice, but where-as Aphorisms can be more abstract, Proverbs are usually quite specific.  They are always in relation to some specific 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 Proverb) comes from or what social or cultural group it is being used in.
