Ben quoting a proverb.[1]

A proverb is a simple to understand saying, similar to an adage.

Twisty once attempted to quote a proverb from Thomas H. Palmer in his book The Teacher's Manual, but he misquoted it; saying: "If at first you don't try, succeed again."[2]

Ben once quoted the proverb: "Money is the root of all evil," which was written by the Apostle Paul in his First Epistle to Timothy.[3]
