Proverbs have been Hussain Mohammed Al-Amily's passion since he was a small boy, listening to the grown-ups chatter in his Lebanese village. Later in his homeland Iraq, he became enchanted by the witty folk sayings that were part of everyday discourse. Now, for this book, he has brought together over 3,000 proverbs, humorous and wise anecdotes, and popular quotations from throughout the vast Arab and Islamic world.
Within this intriguing compilation are proverbs that have their roots in the ancient civilizations of Persia and Sumeria, along with those of Kurdish, Turkish and Andalusian origin.
