Proverbial Thursday – Global Words of Wisdom

proverbial-thurs

I find there to be profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and I marvel at the way they are so succinct in communicating the message 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 –

 

He that has a choice has trouble –Dutch proverb

I dwell in possibility – Emily Dickinson

is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck – Unknown

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. First up, I have found a bit of tongue in cheek with a hidden lesson!

Praise Allah, but first tie your camel to a post. Sufi Saying

and a reminder of our unique place in the universe –

It is in your act that you exist, not in your body. Your act is yourself, and there is no  other you.   Antoine de Saint-Exupery

What do you make of these words?

Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the world.

Every one is cutting back, loosing jobs, money and contentment. Thank goodness proverbs are something that has not changed much over the generations.

Each Thursday I post a thought-provoking quote/saying and  proverb. Here is today’s contribution:

“Try to be like the turtle–at ease in your own shell.”

(Bill Copeland)

“Living is like tearing through a museum.
Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw,
thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering –
because you can’t take it in all at once.”

–  Audrey Hepburn –

Dansk: Skæg for sig og snot for sig =
English: Don’t mix business with pleasure,
literally = Keep beard (or: fun) and snot apart

Danish proverb

Something the bearded ones ponder about?
