Kung sino ang pumutak ay siyang nanganak. He who cackled is the guilty party. Magsama-sama at malakas, magwatak-watak at babagsak. United we are strong, divided we fall. Matibay ang walis, palibhasa’y magkabigkis. A broom is sturdy because its strands are tightly bound. Walang palayok na walang kasukat na tungtong. Every pot has a matching lid.

Damiana L. Eugenio, the mother of Philippine Folklore compiled and edited what may very well be considered as the most comprehensive collection of proverbs in our country. There is a limited number of works like this in existence.
