Abstract: 

Since Persian Proverbs have a wide range of aethetic aspects, researchers have considered proverbs as a literary genre. This article discusses three dimensions of Aesthetic:
1. Weight and rhyme of Persian proverbs.
2. Rhetorical dimensions in the field of meaning, expression and novel.
3. Humorous Language and expression of proverbs.
In order to show the quantity and quality of weight and rhyme in Persian proverbs, a sample of one thousand proverbs was selected from five important sources. The result of statistical analyses showed that 52% of proverbs are prose and other 48% are rhythmic (33% prosodic weight, 7% Non-prosodic and 8% with the internal music).
Then after this review of statistical analysis, we analyzed each of these sectors and presented examples. Considering the fact that Persian proverbs in all aspects are close to the weight of folk poetry and by reviewing the comments of six folk poetry experts, proverbs have been described from this view point.
Third section shows the role of audio elements and proportions and exquisite symmetries in making Persian proverbs melodic. At the end we'll point to the important elements of humor and its tips.
