Proverb Scrolls

Chinese proverbs are as old as Chinese culture itself. Through China's long history each era has produced hundreds of popular Chinese sayings. Dictionaries now list as many as 20,000 idioms (cheng yu) and 5,000 proverbs (yan yu). They became famous largely for the stories behind them, stories of love and war, heroes and villians, powerful kings and common farmers. These stories embody the spirit and morale of the Chinese people. Popular ancient Chinese proverbs are a concise way to communicate to others the value of hard work, committment, wise planning, and a plethora of other important virtues.
