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.



 “Habits are first cobwebs, then cables.” Persian Proverb

“Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.” – Rudyard Kipling

  1. The persian one is the kind of thing one can sort of think of for oneself: there’s nothing … quotable about it.
    But I love the Kipling ! – that’s ACE, Amanda ! 🙂
