Is there such a proverb "Every why has a wherefore" in current English? Does it sound natural to you? If it exists, then what is its precise meaning? Also, I wonder if you could provide me with some examples.

Thank you.

  • Supposedly, Shakespeare "Every why hath a wherefore", FYI. But currently: I, personally, have never heard it used in this century (with "has" or "hath"). – Lorel C. May 21 at 14:03
