: try going to your local library and looking up myths, folklore, or idioms. You could even try a book store; they always have really good stuff on the self you can look through. But the reference librarians at the library are an exellent resource for finding stuff like this. Good luck!!
I don't mean to brag, but we (meaning Phrase Finder folk) have more resources than the average library. At least judging by both my local library and my state library.
