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.
From Norway the proverb this week has some encouraging words for those who feel despondent about not measuring up to a task.
Even the best horse may stumble.
[Aldri så god hest at den ikkje kan snuble.]
and a rather cryptic quote from Confucius this week:
“The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.”
What do you suppose it means?
Do you have an opinion?
