Friday Frills

Do not say all you know,
 for he who says all he knows,
often says more than he knows. 

Do not tell all you hear,
 for he who tells all he hears,

 often tells more than he hears. 

Do not spend all you have, 
for he who spends all he has,
often spends more than he has. 

Do not covet all you see,
 for he who covets all he sees
 often wants more than he sees.

Wanting everything you see really is a problem, because it never ends and you always feel there's something you're missing... On that note, I don't want everything that girl in the picture is wearing, just her dress.:)

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! I didnt know this ancient Persian saying, thanks for letting me know, it is really true! In my opinion, when we are pushed by istinct and not think too much about all the consequences, we are going to behave in that way and so tell more then we really know, tell more than we hear, spend more than we got and want more than we see. In my life I've learnt to just be more wise and reflective on everything, from small to big, then act and not vice versa, acting first and then thinking!:) Have a great Friday dear, hope you fied the net troubles!:) Kisses! xo

Wow! so true. Great post Sam. Hope you are well Darling. Thank you for your lovely comments over at mine; always lovely to see xx

Denise said...

This is so good! It reminds me of "don't buy more than what your closet can handle". It's not exactly this way, but it's the idea. I totally agree with the Frills, always! Totally true that "if you say more than you know, you'll say what you even don't know". And the last is for a friend of mine. All she sees she wants. MY things. Your things. Anybody else's things. It's so sad and dangerous to see her eyes on people's things. Everything she touches, when I am wearing the things, she breaks them - and if I am not wearing and we are at a shop, she makes everyhting she can to prevent me from buying the things, she buys it herself and never wears. It's just to make sure I won't have the thing - it is not only with me, as I said, but other friends too.
