Proverbs are very much used in Nepal and, while the proverbs are of universal application, they also preserve the distinct flavour of the Nepalese land and its people. Here are 447 proverbs on every subject from "the rich and the poor" to "fire, wind and water" to "sin, sorrow, fear and folly". Each proverb is quoted in its original Nepali or Newar language version and, on the facing page, it appears in its English translation.
