Traditions in Egypt are engraved in every citizen. Repeated in idiomatic proverbs on a daily basis, they reflect values and beliefs of a rich culture of advisors. They dictate relationships and gender roles. Women are to serve, please, and conform to traditional values and beliefs. The proverbs are furbished with ephemeral experience passed down to generations as paths to a prosperous life. Generations pass away and proverbs outlive. Generations strive to deviate, but end up at point 0.
