Proverbially Speaking

Quotations #5 and #7 

Continuing with the overhall, the two collections of proverbs have been expanded and re-scripted. with about 100 new additions.

 Collection #5, Proverbial Wisdom, contains collected proverbs from around the world. These include some nicely phrased metaphors, a variety of wide ranging advice, and some with modern-day realism. A sampling is included below.

Collection #7, Annoying Proverbs, contains a list of phrases that, if you grew up in the U.S. or many other english-speaking locales, are 'annoyingly' familiar, as they have been used ad nauseum and parodied to even futher nauseum. I have NOT included any of these because they may already be part of your collective subconscious. You'll thank me later.
