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.
The proverb this week comes from Kenya, but is it just speaking of material possessions?
Stolen things bring in misfortune
Quote of the Week: –
I keep returning to Nietzsche, for he has much to say and it is often controversial, provocative, deep and timeless. When I read this quote I pondered about mental health.
Depression and anxiety, for instance, appears to be verging on epidemic proportions, in today’s society. This quote, with particular reference to difficult life circumstances, gives some advice.
But, is it helpful? What do you think?
To live is to suffer; to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
Does it any relevance to a situation you know ?
