Source for Oriental Wisdom

Recommended Posts

Okay, here is my question. I am creating a character for a modern, low-powered, martial arts campaign.

 

He is a professor of Asian Philosophy. (I have a thread posted in Champions [don't know why I didn't put it here, reflex I guess] on his actual character design if anyone cares to look and offer comment.)

We are supposed to be students at a martial arts school. The professor is studying Karate because he keeps getting hassled by people who expect him to know it already.

 

One of his quirks is the quoting of pithy Oriental sayings.

My problem is, I don't know that many!

 

Does anyone know of a good online source for this sort of thing?

 

Thanks in advance,

KA

Thanks Jhamin,

 

I was thinking that some of the people on here might know some off the top of their heads, so I really appreciate you going to the trouble of doing a search for me.

 

Those sites should get me through several sessions, but if anyone knows of any more good ones, please post them.

Hear is one about snezing (an Japanies proverb).

 

"Sneze once, someone is talking about you...

sneze twice, and there saying something good (about you)...

sneze three times, and there saying something bad (about you)...

sneze four times, and your catching a cold."

(About an old japanies wives tale about snezes and rumors)
