Offering definitions, examples of use, and dates of first usage, this dictionary alphabetically presents such 1500 proverbs, from "absence is the mother of disillusion" to "you win some you lose some." The proverbs are drawn from common English usage in England and North America, missing many proverbs that are used in other parts of the English-speaking world. Also included are indexes that list proverbs by theme and key word.
