Quotable Sunday ~Proverbs

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend as much as I am. We are not doing anything special, since Hubby works in retail he of course has shifts all weekend. I love having the opportunity to spend an extra day with the kiddos though!

This week I threw together a few Proverbs for you to ponder:

One going to take a pointed stick to poke a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts. ~ West African Proverb

You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was ~ Irish Proverb

An inch of time cannot be bought with an inch of gold. ~ Chinese Proverb

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in. ~ Greek Proverb

A book, tight shut, is but a block of paper. ~ Chinese Proverb

Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it. ~ Swedish Proverb

Great minds discuss ideas, medium minds discuss events, and little minds discuss people. ~ Hindu Proverb


Instead of complaining that the rosebush is full of thorns, be happy that the thorn bush has roses. ~ German Proverb

I loved this quote the most:

Sometimes we all need to remember that right? Unconditional Love.

Have an AMAZING day!

I love the: love me when I least deserve it one. I think that is sooo true. It would make the world a nicer place.

Excellent choices, LT! Since I'm Swedish, I'm a bit partial to the Swedish ones... ;)

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! :)
