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.”
“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
Something the bearded ones ponder about?

A philosophic Aussie writes here at StPA, one who will readily admit to loving Scandinavia. I'm interested in global politics and what drives us to be who we are. Scratch the surface and you'll find a practical Environmentalist with an egalitarian bent, trying to unleash a little creativity via the written word.
Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I'm Australian. Travel and courteous discussions greatly broaden the mind, so I travel if I can and am always up for a vigorous, respectful discussion. I'm an avid reader, I enjoy photography and craft, particularly traditional art forms. I hope you'll find 'Something to Ponder About,' in my WordPress Community.
