“You take more care of your shoes, than your foot.” –Traditional proverb Agree, disagree? I love all proverbs, aphorisms, koans, and teaching stories — which is one reason I started doing the “A Little Happier” mini-episodes of our podcast. They give me a chance to share some of my favorites. If you love proverbs, I highly recommend Thomas Fuller’s Gnomologia, Adagies and Proverbs, Wise Sentences and Witty Saying, Ancient and Modern, Foreign and British, a book that’s a reprint of Fuller’s ye olde 1732 collection. So many proverbs! The post Agree? “You Take More Care of Your Shoe, Than Your Foot.” appeared first on Gretchen Rubin.
