I love Jamaican proverbs.
They have seen me through good times and bad, and have helped me solve the most difficult problems. The wit and philosophy of Jamaican Proverbs can be astounding; they often leave you bent double with laughter or deep in contemplation at the philosophical implications. I hope you enjoy this little book as much as I do – keep it with you always.
