Wisdom of Sa’di
about this book
  • overview

    This is the first type of work where the verses from Golestan and Boostan have been dealt with subject wise. It is the compilation of the condensed and striking thoughts of the distinguished poet and writer Shaikh Sa'di on important and interesting subjects, arranged in English alphabetical order of topics, for ready reference. This book represents a 'Dictionary of Thoughts' of the great writer on various topics as depicted in Golestan and Boostan. It makes it possible to find all the quotations on associated subjects from the above two books with a minimum of effort. No other Persian poet has provided as many proverbs and maxims as the honourable sage has. For a speaker or writer, it becomes easy to give quotations from this book. There have been translations of Sa'di's Golestan and Boostan in the past, but such books are not within easy reach of the readers  today.
