What is a saying
A proverb is a certain sentence in a language that briefly contains an important statement. Such sayings are usually so old that they were already widespread in the Middle Ages. That is why they often sound old-fashioned: "The morning hour has gold in its mouth."
Proverbs are often rhymed to make them easier to remember. An example of this is the saying “What you can get today, don't postpone it until tomorrow.” Such a saying has been used unchanged for a long time.
With the vast majority of proverbs, you don't know who came up with them. Only very few people know the writer who came up with the proverb: For example, some proverbs come from the Bible and are known in the German translation by Martin Luther.
In German we have also adopted many proverbs from Latin. Often they are quotations that were spoken by a Roman general or philosopher and that have been preserved for posterity. One example is a quote from Julius Caesar: “Alea iacta est” we also like to say in German: “The die has been cast”.
