*Fun with Proverbs
A proverb is many things to many people. It may be defined as a wise old saying, or as a short and frank expression. At other times it is called a byword or a clever phrase of wisdom. Often the terms 'succinct' and 'pithy' are used to describe a proverb, indicating the sayings are direct and to the point -- while at the same time containing some helpful, practical or cautionary advice.
