Adage – a proverb or short statement expressing a general truth.

We created the Daily Adage to share truth. We take the brief statement and unpack it to reveal deeper wisdom and meaning. The proverbs and maxims of ancient times assumed a measure of familiarity with their underpinnings. This is why some adages don’t resonate with modern audiences.

We gain much from improved wisdom. In undertaking a cataloguing of popular and sometimes forgotten sayings, we sought to reveal truth and more importantly help you take advantage of it.
