CHINESE WISDOM AND NEW YEAR OF THE GOAT – project “52”
We greeted yesterday the Chinese New Year. Happy Chinese New Year my dear friends that celebrate! I wish you and all those you love best of luck, good health and fortune for the forthcoming year of the Goat!
I would love to share few of my favourite Chinese proverbs that often I draw wisdom from for my own strength and enlightenment:
Patience is power; with time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes silk.
When luck visits you, everyone will know where you live.
Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
To attract good fortune, spend a new coin on an old friend, share an old pleasure with a new friend, and lift up the heart of a true friend by writing his name on the wings of a dragon.
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
Kindness is the best quality of the soul.
Frugality is the mother of prosperity.
Don't curse the darkness - light a candle.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
Health and prosperity,
