Some old fashioned sayings are hard to understand, as we all know. At camp we heard a lot of those. I’m going to dig deep and show you a meaning of one saying we heard at camp then a saying Confucius said.
Sovereign Hill Quote
“All that glitters is not gold.” Some people think it means gold is more valuable than anything. It actually means if someone looks good on the outside they might be bad on the inside. Everyone encounters someone like that in their life and it’s okay because you’re not the only one. If you can be nice you’ll always be gold even if you don’t glitter.
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.” Some people think this means when you fall you need to get up. It actually means we all will fail at some point or another. But true failure is only when we fail to get up. It also means you have to build a bridge and get over it.
