Many love proverbs for their wit and briefness. A Poem that was written many years ago reflect this:

Wise Proverb
Written by Bryan Waller Procter, AD, 1787-1874

I said that I loved the wise proverb
Brief, simple and deep;
For it I'd exchange the great poem
That sends us to sleep.

I'd part with the talk of a neighbor
That wearies the brain,
Like the Rondo that reaches the end, and
Beginneth again.

We hope you enjoy the wisdom that these proverbs contain within.
