Deep proverbs.

  1. Oct 12, 2005 #1
    I'm looking for a good website or book about proverbs, not really everyday kind of proverbs but really philisophical. If you know any, post it.

    If you immedietly know the candle light is fire, then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    How deep is a river if you cannot see the bottom?

    Questions are plenty, answers are few.

    "Peace is an illusion, you merely haven't yet seen what is trying to kill you."
    ...old Spathi proverb

    Not sure what that means, wish I was deep rather than just macho.

    War was an illusion, you just let action get ahead of you.
