Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs, Sayings and Quotes 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.

“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.”

Chinese proverb

The Squeaky wheel gets the most grease. (The person who makes the most fuss gets all the attention.

Something to ponder about.
