I recently had the thought to write all the ‘proverbs’ I’ve gained or developed over the years. As I wrote each one down, I noticed there is a story behind each one. Some are original, others not, and more its hard to tell.
The book of Proverbs talks about collecting the sayings of the wise. We often think about brief statements, but there is much more to them. The proverb is as alive today as any other day. It is a good activity to write these things down. I came up with about 61.
I am not sure if I’ll create a separate category for my proverbs or not. Truth be told, many of them permeate why I write about anyway. On the flip side, the story of how they were obtained is interesting and part of life and learning. What do you all think? Leave a comment below.
