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.Family 2013 091

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.

    1. Want you to do something for me (and you, in a way), Amanda: go to http://irmaskiss.wordpress.com and tell me what the front page looks like to you.
      I ask because this is the same site you were using when I was whingeing about the likes gravatars being over to the right; and I’d like to know if you seem the same thing on Irma’s blog …

    2. Yes the gravatars extend over into the sidebar, and over the top of the text. She, like me, is using her own background image and when and if she changes to a new theme, she won’t be able to use her image unless she pays to customize the theme.
