CHINESE WISDOM AND NEW YEAR OF THE GOAT – project “52”

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,

Sophia
