Peculiar Proverbs: Weird Words of Wisdom from Around the World


The proverbs in this book are all genuine sayings collected from many cultures around the world. They are extracts from a number of proverb collections (many dating from the nineteenth century) compiled by various folklorists, linguists, social anthropologists and travellers.
This collection ignores the common sayings we’re all familiar with and concentrates on the more colourful, unusual and, in some cases, incomprehensible proverbs that have been recorded over the years.
Many of these sayings fall naturally into categories such as ‘Love and Marriage’ or ‘The Fairer Sex’ but others are not so easy to classify and have been ordered in a less conventional fashion.
