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 think so too.
Never mind if your nose is ugly as long
as you can breathe through it –
Success has always been a great liar-
What do you make of the quote and proverb for this week? What is the proverb from Zaire trying to say. Is it encouraging or disparaging?
And why is success a liar?
I invite you to leave a comment and join in the discussion.
