Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the World

I find profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and marvel at the way they are 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.


Very Lord of the Rings


As I am heading for Norway, as this post goes to press, a Norwegian proverb might be appropriate.

“With every rising of the sun, think of your life as just begun.”

(Norwegian proverb saying found on edge of traditional bowls)


“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”

(Martin Luther)


Some words about Life to ponder about this week.
