    I think it's maybe an Emerson quote but so appropriate for every politician.

    "What you do shouts so loud I can't hear what you are saying."

    Jess is having a hard time with a "friend". She has two kids and he says he cant get involved with a girl with children. I texted him asking him just that. "Do you think it is simply because she has children". He texted back "I dont know". So I, wanting to be silly , texted back "What will be will be. If it was meant to be... Absence makes the heart grow fonder you know". He texted me back "That was the dumbest shit I have ever heard."

    They've also been called proverbidiums.

    Here's a new one:

    When you have your health you don't give it a second thought. When you don't have your health it's your only thought.


    Onward and upward.

    It is not gold all that shines

    Don't go over the creek after water

    Behind the clouds, it is always sunny

    Equal children play the same

    To eat like a horse

    One child is like none, two are like ten

    The work enobles the man

    When the sun goes down in west, the lazy people work best

    I don't remember more Norwegian sayings just know
