Proverbial Thursday – Global Proverbs and Quotes

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.

Another quirky proverb, this week from Iceland:
The fox lurks in his hole gnawing the whitened bone -Icelandic proverb

and a quote from the Author of ‘Out of Africa’:

The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea”

Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen)
