From the hilarious and romantic to the philosophical and literal, the idioms, proverbs, and adages in this illustrated collection address the nuances of language in the form of sayings from around the world. From the French idiom "to pedal in the sauerkraut" (meaning, "to spin your wheels"), to the Japanese idiom "even monkeys fall from trees" (meaning, "even experts can be wrong"), The Illustrated Book of Sayings reveals the remarkable diversity, humor, and poignancy of the world's languages and cultures.
