One way to learn a new language, or learn about one you already speak, is through proverbs. These are short sayings that say more than they mean in any language. You could call them quotes on life. Proverbs help build vocabulary, learn turns of speech or idioms, and give an insight or two into the culture of the people who speak a language. The list to follow is just a start. Feel free to add your own. Include both Engish and Punjabi so that some of our members are not left in the dark, and lose out on the fun.
