Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs and Quotes 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.

In keeping with the book theme that is currently proliferating my posts, I have chosen a proverb from Saudi Arabia this Proverbial Thursday:

“A book is a garden carried in the pocket.Saudi Arabian Proverb

“We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies.”
Roderick Thorp
