Chinese Proverbs and Popular Sayings

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.
Qin Xue Herzberg and Larry Herzberg live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and are co-authors of the popular China Survival Guide as well as Basic Patterns of Chinese Grammar.

    The country was first ruled by kings, including in the time of Confucius, then by emperors from 221 BCE until 1911 CE. Then followed the dictatorial rule of Chiang Kai-shek from the 1920s until after World War II, and for the past six decades China has been under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party. This has meant that it has always been extremely dangerous to speak one’s mind too freely, especially in challenging those in power.
