Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the World

Proverbs and sayings contain so much wisdom, and are usually utterly so succinctly, in just a few small words. They carry the wisdom down with them via many generations. Each thursday, I post a proverb and a saying or Quote, that I find thought provoking. I hope you will too.

Something to ponder about on Thursdays.

“Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.”

Another Norwegian proverb:

“Det er ikke gull alt som glimrer”–All is not gold that glitters.


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.
