A collection of proverbs

African Savannah



They say a picture is worth a thousand words! ... but more often than not I am captured by a simple saying, something that arrests my attention and makes me think differently. I love words, even one word with the right picture has the potential to change our perspective.

A proverb is a simple saying expressing truth and inspirational thought. Proverbs are based on common sense and practical experience with the purpose of teaching simple lessons about life. They have the ability to provoke deep thought or spontaneous laughter and allow us room to expand our heart and soul. 


Proverbs 23:19


A society's culture and beliefs are succinctly reflected through these short and pithy sayings. They are often metaphorical in nature and usually alliterative, but not always! Trying to come up with a proverb is not easy ... for one thing there are already so many out there and two it really does take a bit of time to make it work.  


So here's the thing ~ I thought it would be fun to gather a collection of proverbs and share a little proverbia around. 


~ Capture, cherish and celebrate your life with me.

capture, celebrate, cherish

This is a wonderful idea. The photos are lovely. I'm always thinking of encouraging words and Bible verses for my photos.

I will try to join you sometime (probably after my 30 days of Thanksgiving.)

Blessings,

I love what you have started here; hopefully I can post before it closes next time! :) (and do it right!)

There is so much inspiration in the book of Proverbs; I will have to look through some of my photos that will compliment the proverb post.

Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
