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.
This week the proverb comes from a country I have not featured previously on Proverbial Thursday:
Life is a candle before the wind – Japanese Proverb
God has no religion – Gandhi
Does the Japanese proverb ring true for you?
What do you make of Gandhi’s words?
