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.Collage cut out original #2

    1. Interesting that zen is similar in this instance to a radical fundamentalist movement. I tend to think in the positive framework and then it sounds motivating, but I can see what you are getting at. Thanks always for contributing valuable insight M.R.
