Proverbs and sayings often provide us with wise words from all corners of the world. Best savoured a little at a time, these sayings are passed down from generation to generation. Each Thursday, I post a saying, or proverb and a quote that I find thought-provoking. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
There can be no peace without understanding. (Senegalese Proverb)
This week I have been pondering Forgiveness. Gandhi is quoted as saying:
“The Weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.”
Do you agree with this statement?
In today’s world and political climate, some people see those who seek retribution as showing strength? But is it based on strength, fear or even hatred? When I was contemplating this, if was as if Gandhi answered my question himself, as the next thing I read was this:
An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.
What do you make of the above quotes and proverbs? They provided some clarity for me, in my head space.
What do they say to you?
