Quotable Sunday #11 Chinese Proverbs


Yay :) Another week of Quotable Sunday is here. Head on over to A Daily Dose of Toni's to sign in with Mr. Linky (and the rules if you're a newbie) Plus, as you know, ALL of the fun is checking out one another's quotations and leaving comments on quotes that inspire, encourage, or just plain make us laugh.

The theme for my quotes this week is Chinese Proverbs. I just LOVE them. Let me know what you think (and I will return all comment visits :) Have a Super weekend.





A hundred men may make an encampment, but it takes a woman to make a home

Insanity is doing the same thing in the same way and expecting a different outcome.


Small ills are the fountains of most of our groans. Men trip not on mountains, they stumble on stones.


Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.


With true friends . . . even water drunk together is sweet enough.



You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.




Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.




Heaven has a road, but no one travels it; Hell has no gate but men will dig to get there



If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow


The journey is the reward.
