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.

 

There is nothing noble about being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Hindustani Proverb

A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.
David Brinkley
