I find there is profound wisdom in the proverbs, sayings and quotes of days past, and I marvel at the way these few words 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 think so too.
This week, I continue my proverbs shared from Sifiso’s Blog.
Proverbs are used widely in African culture. Wisdom passed on from generation to generation in these short thought provoking phrases.
Money can’t talk, yet it can make lies look true
South African Proverb
and the quotes for this week come from an American Author:
“Opportunities dance with those on the dance floor.”
“Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.”
– H Jackson Brown Jr.
Who do you think of, when you read the South African Proverb?
Is the first quote about exploitation or participation?
Can you find a better description of love, than H Jackson Brown Jr.?
I would be pleased to hear your comments.
I invite you to join in the discussion.
