Is there somewhere good to find a list of common ways to say longer stuff in English? (an "adage" or something?)

Like for example, "those who are ignorant about a subject are often the loudest about it" -- any shorter way to say this other than simply rewording it?

Hope you understand what I mean, thank you!

i dunno, i would guess ebonics might be useful,
"real niggas don't talk shit cuz they already know"

May not be what you're looking for but that's called the Dunning-Kruger effect
