Wise owl

Welcome to Proverbs of the World, where common sense and wisdom rule. Where money is the root of all evil, curiosity killed the cat, and the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

These sagacious sayings are the distilled wisdom of the ages. They are jewels of good sense. Their lessons are as relevant today, as when first heard hundreds and sometimes thousands of years ago.

A country can be judged by the quality of its proverbs, according to a one German saying.

Enjoy our store of wise words. And trust Tennyson's advice - "Knowledge comes, but wisdom stays".
