Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs and Sayings from around the World

I think there is profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and I 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.Travelthemepurplejul14

Each Thursday, I post a Proverb or Saying and a Quote that I find thought-provoking.  I hope you will too.


“Make a friend when you don’t need one.” – Jamaican Proverb

“He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak.” – Unknown


Something to Ponder About this Thursday


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
