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.
“Man ska inte köpa grisen i säcken”
One shouldn’t buy the pig in the sack
Is this proverb a caution similar to suggesting that a ‘buyer beware?” A warning against buying items, sight unseen? Or could there be a deeper hidden layer of meaning?
“If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values:
they’re just hobbies”
Social comparison is the thief of happiness.
You could spend a lifetime worrying about what others have,
but it wouldn’t get you anything
