Description

Chinese Proverbs

This beautifully illustrated volume collects more than 50 traditional Chinese proverbs in an irresistible treasury of timeless folk wisdom. Each proverb-presented in both Chinese and English-offers classic advice and keen observation on subjects ranging from affection (A good friend shields you from the storm) to common sense (Do not climb a tree for fish) to the hardest lessons (The eyes are wide but the stomach is narrow). Charming illustrations by Hu Yong Yi bring the proverbs to life, and an insightful introduction illuminates their history and significance. Witty, wise, and utterly delightful, Chinese Proverbs is the perfect gift for those seeking guidance with good humor.
