Chinese Proverbs and Popular Sayings: With Observations on Culture and Language

A collection of 500+ proverbs in Chinese and English, capturing the enduring wisdom of China, for travelers and language students.

This treasury of Chinese wisdom presents over five hundred proverbs while offering keys to culture and language. Here are both the familiar, earnest sayings of Confucius and Lao Zi ('The longest journey begins with a single step') and the homespun truths of every day ('Teachers open the door; you enter by yourself'). Designed both for inspirational browsing and for students of language and culture, the text is organized by subject (Learning, Patience, Money, Family, Food, etc.) and provides commentary plus Chinese characters and pinyin romanization for each entry. Includes an index.

'Chinese Proverbs and Popular Sayings is for everyday readers looking for pithy sayings, deeper understanding of the Chinese culture and a unique look at the Chinese language.'
- The Rapidian

'Chinese Proverbs and Popular Sayings opens a diverting and useful window on Chinese language and culture.'
- Asian Review of Books
