Proverbs, East & West: An Anthology of Chinese, Korean, & Japanese Sayings with Western Equivalents
Kim Yong-chol (ed). A personal selection of proverbial sayings from 3 kindred nations in the Far East (China, Korea & Japan) & from Western nations, primarily England & the U.S. Each group of Asian proverbs -- arranged in such thematic categories as “The Virtues,” “The Natural,” & so on -- is placed with a comparable group of Western proverbs so that the reader may view the Asian proverbs against their Western equivalents, or vice versa. There are many instances of the unity of perception in both Asian & Western proverbs. For ex.: One kind word will keep you warm for 3 winters (Asian); A kind word is like a spring day (Western). The reader will find that, even in this unity of perception, proverbs from various cultures & nations reveal subtle differences in imagery & diction.
