Ship, EUROPA Issue, Republic of Cyprus
Description:Α proverb is an intellectual creation the origins of which disappear in the mists of time. Many belong to another age but have survived to this day. It is known that even the most primitive of people have their proverbs. From these we can detect the observations of the people and also their expressive ability. The brevity of this type of expression, without additional explanations, is indeed incredible.The proverb "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" has its origins in Latin from the 1st century B.C. The proverb "Art is long, life is short" is attributed to Hippocrates (c 460-357 B.C). From earlier Greek we have the proverb "Constant dripping wears away a stone" and the translation of the Modern Greek proverb is "Drop by drop the marble is holed".
