Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the World

I find profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and marvel at the way they can be so succinct in communicating messages to the reader. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and across cultures, and speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes like proverbs, can make us think more deeply about something.

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

“Stillest vann har dypest grunn”–Still waters runs deep.

(Norwegian Proverb)




“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched–they must be felt with the heart.”

(Helen Keller)

Some poignant words to ponder about.
