      Agreed. Our book has proverbs on conflict, justice, resolution, etc. Since we are rebuilding the database on our website, we may not yet have many available on the website, but try the proverb generator. Also, there should be more than 1,000 different proverbs on our Facebook page, but I know there are some proverbs that relate to law. Hope this helps.
