    We do use lot of proverbs in our daily life and also we hear the same. why can't we make a collection of those and also add the equivalent proverbs from other countries also. If the proverb is in other languages it is better to give the explanation so that we can understand it.
    My share is--
    Noyattra vaazhvae kuraivattra selvam-----Health is wealth
