Last night while randomly browsing the internet, I came across some proverbs from different countries about trees. Proverbs play many roles in society. The first, possibly, most common role that a proverb plays is to educate and give advice (in an obscure way). Below is a compilation of some of my favorites. Which one do you like best?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The next best time is now. -  Chinese Proverb

A tree never hits an automobile except in self defense. - American Proverb

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in." -  Greek Proverb

"Around a flowering tree, one finds many insects." -  Proverb from Guinea

"A tree falls the way it leans." -  Bulgarian Proverb

"A tree does not move unless there is wind." -  Afghan Proverb

"A tree is known by its fruit." -  Zulu Proverb

"Great trees give more shade than fruit." - German Proverb
