Excerpt from A Classified Collection of Tamil Proverbs
Again, is it right to insert in our collections of proverbs hundreds and hundreds of aphorisms, classical sayings (15350a) and common sayings, when these only communicate a truth in a general way, without making use of any sort of illustration? It seems to me that we should not allow the confusion of proverbs with mere precepts or maxims destitute of proverbial significance and character to go on. Each in its proper place. I have not left them out altogether, but tried to insert only such as are common, and at the same time contain rare words or idiomatic phrases.
