Poles are gregarious, cheerful,
hard-working, and earnest–qualities reflected in their proverbs, collected here by author Joanne Asala.
Some examples: “Love enters a man through his eyes and a woman through her ears.” “Without work, there is no
bread.” “Do not push the river; it will flow on its own accord.”
The back and front covers feature stunning illustrations of paper cuts by the late Polish folk artist Alice Wadowski-Bak, with
more of her work throughout the book.
