I find there to be 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 from across cultures. They speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes, like proverbs, 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.
Det er med løgn som med en snebold, jo længere den triller, jo større bliver den.
It is with lies as with a snowball, the longer they continue, the bigger they become.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
– Ernest Hemingway
