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.
Be yourself. The world worships the original.–Ingrid Bergman
Sayings offer us knowledge; knowledge that is passed to us in much the same way relay runners might pass a baton. Once it’s handed over, it is up to us what we do with it and how we pass it on.
Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and from across cultures. They speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned.
“I hate that word: ‘lucky.’ It cheapens a lot of hard work.”
Quotes, like proverbs, make us think more deeply about something.
Do you feel that luck has a lot to do with success? Are some folks luckier than others? Does that give them an advantage in life?
Or is it merely the rhythms of chance, and life ‘evens out’ in the end?
Isn’t life not always fair and even?
