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.

Når der er to torsdage i en uge = When pigs fly (literally: When a week has two Thursdays)

Danish saying

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”

Something to ponder about today.
