Proverbs- The Essence of Sagacity

"The wit of one and the wisdom of many" or rather "A good maxim never out of season". Mere words upon letters upon wisdom. The very channel by which the literary fronts exhibit their rationality, their very autonomy and their sheer capacities. Whether seeking a time-honoured truth, or pondering some inspiration, the ever infinite realm of literature has endowed its user with the faculty of Proverbs. They stand not as a mere expression of logic or reasoning, rather they are the pilliars that reinforce the centre of our culture in a seamless and uncompromising fashion. They credit love and affection, denounce and vilify greed and propagate the propagation of knowledge. Bound by an inaccesible source of inspiration, they seem to thrive out of the thinnest of air, leaving the psyche to awe at it potential. Proverbs seem fabricated from an architectural basis. Their persistent prowess evokes a provokative sensation and their sheer sagacity and rationality leave no room for opposition or contradiction are indicative of a meticulous design. A design evoking stimuli, proving how synesthetic language and its faculties can be. Individuals lacking open-mindedness view language as a mere conveyance of thought through that of the linguistics we view native to our background, the intellectual seeks the next dimension, perceives the reality as the final frontier read to be conquered. Proverbs bridge the gap between the westerner and the easterner, the communist and the democrat, the theist and the atheist. What particularly intrigues the intellectual is the prospect that proverbs as a language mechanism are indiscriminate of their origin, occurring deep within the annals of the west down towards the publications of the Middle Kingdom. A treasury of neither economic nor social proportions, rather one of sagacity, of wisdom and eloquence. An impending and accesible force assuming the modest role as a kernel of logic.  Logic is unquestionable when placed in a systematic and intuitive order. Likewise proverbs gain their notoriety from their ability to capture, to grasp and captivate the faculty of the psyche that seeks logic and reasoning. The mastery of the linguistics and the multitude of concepts covered from the patriotic love of ones nation to the destructive nature of deceit adds to this respect. Sagacity comes in many forms, but its literary nature makes it a conquerable reality for the average individual. Proverbs are the spirit, the very genius and wit of a nation as proposed by Bacon and the essence of literacy and sagacity to the intellectual. They are the hymn of motivation, harborer and restorer of persistence and endower of hope. The lifeless, breathless manifestations of human thought. Infallible entities, for the holders of fallibility remain their crafters. And as we converge onto a new era, one where the advent of modernism will almost certainty eliminate the social and cultural tenets we hold central to that of the past, proverbs remain timeless, their proximity infinite and their true connotations limitless. It is the central prospect that proverbs as both a literary armamentarium and as a kernel of sagacity are accesible that is certain, indiscriminate of the circumstance. But the very attainalbility of the intellectual remains a variable, a conquerable feat belonging to those whose psyches are of a worthy and virtuous nature. Proverbs are an essence, the purest substance of literary articulation and composition. Their usage, quotation and contemplation place them in a position of prestige and wisdom above all the literary fronts.
