Greek proverbs

Postby ivan » Wed Sep 19, 2012 8:04 pm

It's easy to find proverbs, sayings, quotations for latin language because it unique.
But for greek language not. Because there's also modern greek and so.
I just started learning it and I can't see if it's ancient greek or modern yet.
So I wanted to know, if there is a website with ancient greek proverbs, quotations, sayings which are written in greek and then translated to english.
Thanks.

The first and second book don't have greek proverbs (in ancient greek language). At least I couldn't see any.
And the last one is modern greek, but right now I'm learning ancient greek.

Oh, I apologise, I found them in a book. (but don't know which one) They're at very end of it. There aren't so many. But a lot of latin. Thanks!

Just read Plato's Symposion - it's full of proverbs!

From book 6 of the Odyssey:

...προς γαρ Διος εισσιν απαντες
ξεινοι τε πτωχοι τε...
