Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the World

Wise words from days past, uttered so succinctly, much can be learned from just a few words. Mostly anonymous quotes, some by famous or inspirational persons. Some special words to ponder about.

We do not live to eat or make money.

We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life.Shot Tower Melbourne

That is what life means and what life is for.

George Leigh Mallory

After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box.

Italian Proverb


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
