Proverbs from Around the World collects the best 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 all 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.
