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.

Silence is also speech.  ~Proverb (for Poppy over at A Viking Saga)

and a pertinent quote in regards to the recent discussion on  the omnipresent mobile phones:

I fear the day technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots. ~ Albert Einstein

Something to Ponder About.
