List of Spanish proverbs

In Spanish language, the native, popular proverbs received the name of refranes. In Mexico, these are called dichos. Most of them are humorous. The first anthology of them, with the title of "Proverbs that old women tell around the fire" (in Spanish, Proverbios que dicen las viejas tras el fuego) was made by the writer Marqués de Santillana in the 15th century. Sancho Panza, one of characters of the Don Quijote, spouts proverbs for any occasion.
