Because life is a series of edits

Wildwood Wisdom (part 4)

In Thought on March 1, 2007 at 6:07 am

Okay, last day of high schoolers being wise (thanks for enjoying/enduring):

“The wise man lets his hard work speak,
but the fool attempts to heighten his position in the eyes of others.
For the wise man knows that his actions will display his intelligence,
while the fool does not trust his own ability.
He who keeps his success to himself will earn more,
but the braggart shall gain nothing.”

“A stressed out mind will never enjoy life,
but one who lives his life to the fullest has a mind of peace.
We fill our lives with many things,
but eventually all of them will turn to dust.”

“Papier mache takes forever to dry,
but an oven can solve that problem.”

Anybody care to contribute your own proverb? Feel the freedom in the comments.

  1. Here’s one I made up a while ago:

    Like sands through the hourglass,
    so are the days of our lives.

  2. Very contemporary, Nick, in a soap opera kind of way.
