I enjoyed learning each Japanese proverb or saying. It had both Japanese and English translations and even breaks down each word used in the phrase and shows you its meaning. I may not remember them all in Japanese, but remembering them in English is easier for me.
I definitely recommend a book like this one just to give you a glimpse into a different cultures' sayings. It's also a great spiritual pick-me-up!
