In fondo, i proverbi e i modi di dire, come le favole di una volta, dopo aver provocato una risata a chi è pieno di problemi fino ai capelli, lasciano un ammaestramento o un consiglio, che non pretendono d’essere lezioni di filosofia, ma che – spesso – ci invitano a chiederci se non ci prendiamo troppo sul serio e a trarne le debite conseguenze. Esistono proverbi gravi, intelligenti e perfino pii, ma, nella maggior parte, sono un po’ cialtroni atti, tuttavia, advert illustrare una situazione, un modo d’essere, uno stato d’animo con una battuta fulminante.”
