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.Family 2013 006


Brent barn skyr ilden”–A burnt child avoids the fire (Once bitten, twice shy)

Norwegian Proverb

Nothing lasts forever, so live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, take chances and never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.

Marilyn Monroe

  1. Another excellent ‘proverb’ post, marred only by the link to the Wikipedia ‘anti-proverb’ page. I think I should stop mentioning that, as I fear you may begin to detest me for it 🙂
