What a lovely color on that Iris! Beautiful!

Of course this saying is Biblical too, though worded differently. A good thought to remember during our struggles in life.

The iris is Pompano Peach and was given to me by Muddymitts, beautiful!!!

The proverb is mostly attributed to Confucius who lived in the 550 B.C. period. Proverbs are often borrowed from similar languages and cultures, and sometimes come down to the present through more than one language. Both the Bible (mostly the Book of Proverbs) and medieval Latin have played a considerable role in distributing proverbs across Western Europe and through the world.

I think the more specific phrasing relates to the I Peter 4 chapter in the New Testament, though the wording is not quite the same. Meaning is the same though.

Sharon, I agree with the "don't stop teaching" comment. We all welcome your educational tidbits, every single time they appear. Remember, we are never too old to stop learning. And who better to teach us than someone we all love. Lovey dubby
