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.
Betre aa byggje sitt eige bo enn sitja paa framand pinnne og glo. (norsk)
It is better to build a nest of one’s own than to sit in another man’s, and chafe
– Norwegian Proverb
Wherever one finds oneself, and no matter how hard or desperate the situation is; the outer world is just a reflection of one’s thinking. You see what you project, and our power is in creating a beautiful story, no matter how humble or apparently mundane.
