Overview

A Dictionary of English Proverbs - 1,880 exclusively English Proverbs - "The genius, wit, and spirit of a nation are discovered by their proverbs."—Lord Bacon. Many books on the subject have been written, but it is hoped that this collection will, in some respects, be found to be an improvement on all its predecessors. Like The Dictionary of Daily Blunders, this Dictionary of English Proverbs has been framed so as to enable the reader to find what he wants without difficulty. The Dictionary itself is arranged according to the principal words, and there is also a Copious Index of additional principal words. Enjoy
