: I don't understand the assignment. It isn't clear what proving or disproving any of these means. They aren't the kind of thing that can be proved or disproved; that is, they aren't assertions; they aren't "true" or "not true." Each of them, however, has been discussed recently in this forum because other people asked. (Maybe those people were your classmates.) If you look for the phrases on the main Discussion Forum page, you'll find something about the history of each one.
ya those other disscusions were mine, see the assignment was to pick three or four proverbs and back them up using scinifitic info. With that I have to write a 500-700 word essay and I have no clue what I am doing
