ONWARD: Chinese Probverbs (Part Two)

Grace Lin is a children's author and illustrator who also makes posts about various aspects of Chinese ethnicity on her blog Every Friday she posts a Chinese Proverb on her blog and reading them prompted me to look up more Chinese proverbs. The following Chinese proverbs were some of my favorites from the website
"Count not what is lost, but what is left."
"Do not climb a tree to look for a fish."
"We are not so much concerned if you are slow as when you come to a halt."
"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere."
"Even the tallest tower started from the ground."
"Take a second look,it costs you nothing."

ONWARD: Chinese Proverbs

  I was inspired by children's author and illustrator Grace Lin, of the gracelinblog, to look up Chinese Proverbs.  Ms. Lin posts a Chinese proverb on her blog every Friday.
"By nature all men are alike, but by education very different."
"Don't open a shop unless you like to smile."
"Be not afraid of growing slowly, be only afraid of standing still."
"A book holds a house of gold."
"Deep doubts, deep wisdom; small doubts, little wisdom."
"A bird does not sing because it has an answer.  It sings because it has a song."
Chinese Proverbs!

ONWARD: You Might Be a Blogger If...

You might be a blogger if: have ever made an online post about the weather. frequently ask new acquaintances for their email address. get a small surge of joy when you finally figure out the letters and numbers for the captcha when leaving a comment on a blog.

...if you put the feelings of your heart out there for all to see.
