New and old Proverbs, and sayings
A tribute to Proverbs new and old
In the old testament a King people named Solomon wrote a book with a lot of sayings. In modern times these seem to have all but disappeared. I am looking to collect new ones, as well as remeniscing the traditional. And would appreciate it if you, the reader would kindly take the time to place any sayings that you find useful via comments. Any profanity will be denied/deleted.
I start with thoughts that the whole Bible, both old and New Testaments have snippetts that serve as a useful reminder in trying times. If I can remember them at the right time that is. For instance having been wrongly bad mouthed, I remembered a new testament saying "bad company breeds bad character".
All we truly can ever really know is that we don't know!
Know thyself -and earn respect.
Respect others and they will (usually) respect you.
Walk a gentle and straight path and become known for your kindness. Be generous in giving to those in genuine need. And be firm but fair in refusing users, lyers and cheats and you will encourage the kinds of people in your life that will further encourage a cycle of mutual respect.
Watch the film "Lorenzo's Oil" about a genius who finds a cure for his son. While the doctors were messing about in the slow lane; making as much money as they could from every quack answer. And drawing out the trials while children were dying in their relative masses from their illness. That man and his family deserve much RESPECT. Many others just left it to the doctors.
