"Everyone understands the importance that proverbs have in every language. In the form of short, easily memorable phrases, the proverbs contain a great treasure of folk wisdom, and through use of a short proverb, it's often easier to express an idea better and more convincingly, than with a long speech. Knowledge of proverbs is necessary for perfect knowledge of a language."

M.F. Zamenhof, 1905

We agree with L.L. Zamenhof's father, so we included more than 2800 proverbs in Esperanto. You can either look at the entire list of them, or use the search field to look for a specific keyword or topic.
