Proverbial Thursday – Wise words from around the World

Proverbs and sayings are uttered so succinctly that much can be learned from a few small words. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from many generations and cultures, and speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned.

Quotes like proverbs, can make us think more deeply about something.Europe 2011second batch 038

Each Thursday, I post a Proverb or Saying and a Quote that I find thought provoking. I hope you will too.

Special words for you to ponder about on Thursdays.

One meets his destiny often in the road he takes to avoid it.
French Proverb

God has no religion. Gandhi

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.
