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.
Do not lengthen the quarrel while there is an opportunity of escaping-
I do like this proverb.
It could be helpful in all situations, both personally and diplomatically. Some of us need to have the last word, or feel if we say just one more thing, it will convince the other party of our view, or our righteousness. Why is it so hard for some people to walk away from a quarrel, and other’s not?
Is this the only interpretation of this proverb? Perhaps you can find a deeper layer?
