Proverbial Thursday – Global Proverbs

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.Proverbial thursdfly sml 3932

“Liten tue kan velte stort lass”–Little strokes fell great oaks.

Norwegian proverb

“It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.”
― Confucius

Proverbial Thursday – Global Proverbs and Quotes

Proverbial sml

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.

[“Livet er fullt av store ting for dem som evner a omgas de sma ting fortrolig”]

Life is full of great things for those who have the innate ability to enjoy the small. – Norwegian proverb

And from a great author who recently passed away here is a quote that I really believe is so true, especially in my case:

“You can have more than one home. You can carry your roots with you, and decide where they grow.”~ Henning Mankell   *
