Sunday Sayings – Trees and Doors

Weekly Quote

unknown

Several years ago, I created ‘Proverbial Friday’ on my blog which morphed into Sunday Sayings.

I became fascinated with traditional proverbs and sayings, their metaphorical layers and the many different interpretations found within just a few, succinct words. I marveled at their ability to transcend race, religion, opinions and age.

Weekly Proverb

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.

The second best time is now.”

Chinese proverb

Sayings, quotes and proverbs 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.
