Proverbs from Around the World

Proverbs from Around the World


“If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.” —Buddhist proverb

Proverbs from Around the World contains over 600 of the best, most profound and illuminating proverbs from all corners of the earth.

As much as there are differences in our cultures, traditions, and beliefs, there are more similarities between us all than we realize. One of these similarities is our penchant to record age-old wisdom through generations.

Proverbs from Around the World feature a grand collection of these passed down knowledge and witticisms from all continents–Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. In so doing, the book gives insight to the wonderful and rich cultures around the world and perhaps helping us all realize that ultimately we are one people.
