    You can get proverbs from some of these sites: http://www.usingenglish.com/links/Id...ons/index.html
    It's hard to give a rule for using proverbs; we use them when they fit the situation. I would recommend, however, that you don't try to use a lot of them; we tend to use the less than we did in the past.
