Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs and Sayings from around the World

Proverbial smlI 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 will too.

Bedre bør du bær “kje i bakken enn mannavit mykje”– Norwegian Proverb 

(loosely translated) You can’t carry a better load up a hill than much knowledge.

Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential –  Winston Churchill

One of the first times I have agreed with Churchill! He certainly some great quotes!

Something proverbial to ponder about this Thursday
