Description
You "don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth"--but you do want to look inside these pages to find over 5,000 entertaining and thought-provoking proverbs from around the world. Each article sets out to pinpoint what the saying means, where it originated, when it first appeared, and its subsequent history. A source of delight to casual browsers and for writers searching for that perfect pithy epigram--even if it's as obscure as "A pet lamb makes a cross lamb!"
