Proverbs

I just finished writing my new year resolutions. Top of the list ....... No more procastination!.

Haha .... just kidding. I thought of this when I read the Garfield joke the other day, where he said; "I used to welcome change .... but I have changed my mind."

Do you recall your primary school days when the teacher made us memorize proverbs? Not a bad idea actually because some of them I remember to this day.

- Time and tide wait for no men.
- A stitch in time saves nine.
- Every cloud has a silver lining.
- Pride goes before a fall.
- Procastination is the thief of time.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Three English Proverbs.

A change is as good as a rest.

Birds of a feather flock together.

In for a penny in for a pound.

A chinese translated proverb: Offer a huge monetary reward and there won't be a shortage of brave people stepping forward. It works well in a anarchic country.

Chun See: I had this line once on my blog and I'd like to share it with you.

"I keep the snapshots not for what they show but for what is hidden in them..." Margaret Laurence, from: 'The Diviners'.

You've been doing just that, revealing most that is hidden in the pictures with your meaningful postings of written compositions.

Have many more years of great blogging.

This chinese proverb is my favourite: Three feet of ice is not caused by one night of freeze, meaning that every happening has an underlying reason.
