We Aren't The Only Ones in the World That Phrase Ourselves Well

I had to look it up because I associate "Proverbs" with the Bible.

Proverb:  short, pithy, saying of a truth or piece of advice.
Similar: adage, saw, maxim, axiom, motto, bon mot. 

Call these what you will!

This just in from Readers Digest - "The axe forgets; the tree remembers."  African proverb
I particularly like the sinister tone of the above.

"The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on."  Arabic proverb

"Rooster, be not so proud;, you were once only an egg."  African proverb
