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.wpid-wp-1396593033424.jpeg

“Love is blind, so you have to feel your way.” – Brazilian Proverb

In order to change the world,

you have to get your head together first.”

-Jimi Hendrix

 

Something to Ponder About this week.

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.

    That’s strange, Hendrix broke the last one but we still talk about him.

    Jimi Hendrix did change the world, but perhaps that responsibility was just a bit too much to shoulder…
