Greek Proverbs free pdf Faced with the ups and downs of life, love, and fortune, the ancient Greeks shrugged their shoulders and quoted--or created--an apt proverb. Aristotle, for example, observed, "Democracy is the worst form of despotism." Pindar instructed, "Praise old wine, but new poetry." These proverbs are as earthy, direct, sharp, and vivid today as when they were first uttered. The best of these nuggets of wisdom and observation have been collected in this attractive gift book, which is delightfully and humorously illustrated in a Grecian mode. Each proverb is provided in both Ancient and Modern Greek alongside its English translation.
