Well, it was easier to choose those proverbs that are more or less commonly known in all the world. But after reading more portuguese proverbs, it can be said that even they signify the usual wisdom of mankind, it‘s formulation is the most interesting aspect as in my opinion it reflects the features of portuguese culture.
