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.

…and a quote that is seen in a variety of forms, yet still true nonetheless

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”

  1. That first one would have something to do with the Qu’ran, no, Amanda ? – don’t muslims hold that a beautiful thing MUST NOT be perfect, and that in every wonderful mandala, say, there is always to be found a deliberate error ?
    As for NVP … hmmmm … am hoping it’s a bit late for that. 😉

    1. I hope it is not too late to change the world, M.R. – if not the bigger world but your own inner world!! And I think you are correct about the Qu’ran, although I have not researched this.Thanks for your insightful comments.
