Summary

Summary

Sayings and proverbs are priceless verbal traditions for all to share. And everyone has a favorite. They are unique because in a few words, a deeply serious message can be woven. It is impossible to read proverbs and sayings without learning something important, and perhaps feeling that each one was written especially for you. The proverbs and sayings in this book cause a glow that makes you want to return to them again and again. Also included are rhymes (chiquillados), riddles (adivinanzas), beliefs (creencias) and a bibliography. The Spanish/English text is set in dictionary format for easy reading. A must for those interested in Spanish culture. CHARLES ARANDA was born in Las Vegas, New Mexico and, after serving as a Captain in the Korean War, attended Highlands University where he earned a Master's Degree and was, for many years, an educator in New Mexico schools.
