    A proverb is a simple, real or imaginary and common clause or sentence that tells an unperceived truth based on common feeling, sense or experience.

    Proverbs are often pertaining to a simile according to a formulated language. Generally, they form a sort of very short folk tales.

    Some proverbs exist in more than one language because people borrow them from other nations, languages and cultures.

    Almost every nation has its own exclusive proverbs which are true or contain a piece of advice.
