Emerson once said in justification of conversation on the subject of the weather: We are pensioners of the wind. The weathercock is the wisest man. All our prosperity, enterprise, temper, come and go with the fickle air.

Curiosities in Proverbs


Though the sky of this tear-stained world is overcast 
with clouds, the light of truth shines in the heart. 



Only A Passing Cloud

When darkness hides the sun from view and shadows move across the blue -never let it worry you.

It is only a passing cloud.

Don’t let people spoil your day by what they do and what they say, it doesn’t matter anyway,

they are only passing clouds.

And if a big blow should descend do not think that it’s the end.

You’ll see when once you’re round the bend

It was only a passing cloud.
