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.
If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far go together.
– African proverb
Janet from This that and the other thing posted a wonderful quote which she has given me permission to reproduce this week:
The pale stars were sliding into their places. The whispering of the leaves was almost hushed. All about them it was still and shadowy and sweet. It was that wonderful moment when, for lack of a visible horizon, the not yet darkened world seems infinitely greater—a moment when anything can happen, anything be believed in ― Olivia Howard Dunbar, The Shell of Sense
