Description

This is a unique collection of proverbs and sayings from Persian, Jewish and Western culture. Homayoon Aram, being an Iranian of Jewish faith living in the United States is uniquely qualified to present the subject. He has selected about 4,000 proverbs and sayings from the world of Persian, Judaic and Western literature and has divided them into 129 diverse topics such as love, courage, charity, luck and war. The proverbs come from various sources: the Bible; the Talmud; sayings attributed to historic personalities; classic literature and modern literature. Some of the wisdom is oral and has been passed down by word of mouth from generation to generation. English proverbs are given and accompanied by their closest Persian equivalents. This collection makes the reader aware of the similarities of these apparently dissimilar cultures. Differences in culture can also be noticed. As one proverb states: No like is the same.
