Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the world.

Every one is cutting back, loosing jobs, money and contentment. Thank goodness proverbs are something that has not changed much over the generations.


Each Thursday I post a thought-provoking quote/saying and  proverb. Here is today’s contribution:

“Try to be like the turtle–at ease in your own shell.”

(Bill Copeland)

“Living is like tearing through a museum.
Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw,
thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering –
because you can’t take it in all at once.”

–  Audrey Hepburn –

Dansk: Skæg for sig og snot for sig =
English: Don’t mix business with pleasure,
literally = Keep beard (or: fun) and snot apart

Danish proverb

Something the bearded ones ponder about?


Everyone is important. What do you have to say?
