Monday was “Still learning (God, family, homeschool & Life)” – I wrote about homeschooling on “snowdays”.
Tuesday was Writing for children, teens and YA – I shared a varied list for teens and why it’s important we don’t put ourselves in a box when writing.
Wednesday was Waking up Grumpy (parenting) – I wrote about making my children cry. *sigh*
Thursday was Write2ignite updates – Exactly what it sounds like! And yes, I shared all the up-to-date fabulous news on Write2ignite.
And today? Well, today is Friday. And that means that it’s
Quotes that stick (my fave quotes)” day! That means I’ll share some great quotes – and ask you to share your faves with me, too. You can always tell me if you like any of the quotes I’ve listed and if they gave you a LIGHTBULB (see Despicable Me for accent, please). Of course, sharing your lightbulb moments and fave quotes is purely voluntary (as is reading this post), but also greatly appreciated! 🙂
Let’s start out with some Chinese proverbs. NOTE: I can’t find a site that gives me a credible “yes, these are actual chinese proverbs/sayings…but they still make me think!
- A crisis is an opportunity riding the dangerous wind.
- A person who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the man doing it.
- Black cat or white cat: If it can catch mice, it’s a good cat
- Dig the well before you are thirsty.
- Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.
- You can hardly make a friend in a year, but you can easily offend one in an hour.
- Be not disturbed at being misunderstood; be disturbed rather at not being understanding.
(The above quotes were found on the internet, but many over on http://thinkexist.com)
So – what do you think? Have you heard these before? Did they stir you in anyway…good, bad or ugly?
