Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs and Sayings 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.Sønder Felding

 

Danish quote:

Internettet er spild af tid, og det er præcis det som gør internettet så fantastisk.
The web is a waste of time, and that is the reason why the web is so fantastic.

 

A bear that dances in your neighbor’s house might soon dance in yours.” – Macedonian Proverb

 

Something to Ponder About.

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
