"Tears are the sweat of the brain."

Can somebody explain to me what this means? Any advise will help, thank you.

It's a metaphor.

In an episode of Phineas and Ferb, Buford says "I'm not cryin', I'm sweatin' through my eyes!"

Tears are supposedly used to show emotion. You usually cry when you are sad. For some reason I cry whenever I yawn. The brain stimulates the emotions. Since your tear glands are directly connected to your brain, it is considered the sweat of the brain because your brain works hard to stimulate emotions.

Jajaja, I remember that episode of Phineas and Ferb. Good connection!

To respond to the question, macombdag, it is not meant to be taken literally. Just a metaphor as Septirius says.

Para responder a la pregunta, macombdag, no se debe tomar literalmente. Solo una metáfora como dice Septirius.

Ufff, what a knock. I thought Phineas and Ferb is a classical Greek drama and looking for it, I saw it is an American animated musical comedy television series.
Why not?

I never heard it before, and I like it a lot and still more after the comment of Septirius.
You cry producing tears in emotional moments and emotions come from your brain. So emotions are the strongest possible job of our brain! Interesting thought.
