Popular Sayings and Quotes

The popular sayings can teach us a lot of things about life and the society in which we live. The man is like a bee and is always in search of wisdom and knowledge. Read this article to get some food for thought!
The quotes are super highways to the experiences and lives of men, who in the first place, created them. These men and women had nothing, but their wisdom, experiences and mind to fall back on, in their quest to crystallize the knowledge, in the form of quotes for the rest of less gifted people. This process of distillation of the knowledge resulted in popular sayings which are admired by all. Some saw the sunny side of life and came up with quotes which I sincerely hope you will enjoy and pass on.
