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 Friday, I post a Proverb or Saying and a Quote that I find thought-provoking.
I hope you will too.
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
– Israeli Proverb
In the chilly southern hemispheric temperatures with gardens lying dormant, the following quotes seemed apt:
Time isn’t something you can turn back.
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
– Veronica A. Shoffstall
Your problem is you’re too busy holding onto your unworthiness.
– Ram Dass, Philosopher
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the questions themselves.
– Bohemian Austrian Poet and Novelist, Rainer Maria Rilke
What do you make of this week’s words? Do you have an opinion?
Are the questions more important than the answers?
Are you really holding on to your unworthiness?
