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 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.
The proverb this week comes with thanks to Tidious Ted:
Never talk about ropes when visiting a hanged man’s family
– Spanish proverb
You can not depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus
And finally, this week, a quote that is subject to many interpretations:
Many a small things has been made large by the right kind of advertising
*Samuel Langhorne Clemens is better known by his pen name, Mark Twain and was born on November 30, 1835… Mark Twain travelled many roads during his life and patented a variety of inventions. Despite experiencing poverty during his younger years he became a household name, received a honorary doctorate and advised politicians on copyright law.
I can see a connection between the quotes and sayings albeit a little oblique. Tell me if you do? If not, perhaps I have given you Something to Ponder About
