I actually have no idea how to begin this post (oopsie daisy! *sticks out tongue*)😬, but I’d like to say that often we come across “wise sayings” or proverbs that we most often do not agree with. It was only on a chance encounter did I realize that not all we come across today, is the original version.
Or rather, not all that was said a million years ago has to be true today. Times change and so do our lifestyles and our ideals.✌
I came across these first on Tumblr (it’s such a mind blowing place *whoa* ) and immediately the possible existence of it all, caught my attention. It was a bloody revelation people!⭐🌟
There is More to Proverbs Than You Think!
Infact as a preamble, I’d like to say that many of our “so called traditional practices”, the age-old sayings, actually stemmed from wisepeople who actually did know what they were talking about and are indeed worth quoting or holding onto had they not undergone a change while travelling through the society; probably by people who were none the wiser.😶
( Hearing about the wisdom of the people of the yesteryears might not be new to many of you.😅 But often I end up thinking that people who crafted societal rules are often patriarchs who had nothing better to do.😅 (WHICH, is also true🤷♀️)
Here are 6 super common proverbs/ phrases that were originally NOT what you thought they were..
1. Curiosity killed the cat
Nah. The actual version ?
Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back.
I’m writing this here even though I know I wont be posting it anytime soon. Not for months, anyway. Or maybe, never.
Anyway, that’s largely beside the point now, isn’t it? The person I’m going to talk about is probably not never going to read this. But I think I should talk about this. And it had to be here, because there’s no where else I’d actually be giving so much of intensified feelings.
Not even to my friends, who are by the way, drifting apart to places I know not where. They don’t know themselves. There’s a general isolation occuring recently. But anyway, that’s again me going off track. I’m glad a few people I care about, are still intact by my side.
Before all of you freak out, or start collecting things to throw at me (being optimistic there😂), I’m going to shoutscream tell you that I’M ACTUALLY NOTDELETING MY BLOG JIKSDFRYHDS.
Yayyyy to me!!
But nevertheless, I did think about it, and after going through all your very cool suggestions, I have decided to rebrand and change my entire theme of blogging. (Thank youuu Bethany and Elsie. Don’t know what I’d have done otherwise.)
What is the point of a diamond dangling on a deaf ear? Or on a heartless chest that knows no love.
Don’t be the one who gets fooled by an egg dipped in gold. At the first obstacle, it’s beautiful covering shatters. And there’ll be nothing that will please your eyes.
When you remove the scales from your eyes, and start looking through people, instead of just their faces, life becomes clearer. Rise your eyes to see into people’s hearts, not the way they make their hearts appear.
