Proverbial Thursday – Quotes and Proverbs from Around the World

DSC_0157This week I have added a quote as well as a proverb. At difficult times, it is wise to ponder about and remember the following:

The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. Mark Twain

“Suffering is produced by attachments”

Buddhist saying  (Let go of these things, material or otherwise, so that you are not the focal point. You see yourself as part of the larger narrative , rather than the main focal point). Too much self absorption is not healthy.

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.
