Korean Proverb of the Day

Standard

I recently got a book titled “For the First Time”.  It was written by a man named Shin, Young-bok.  He was imprissoned for 20 years and 20 days in a South Korea prison for joining a student movement against military rule.  He wrote many books while in prison, and this particular book is full of drawings and short proverbs I found interesting.  It was nice to get a translated book in my hands.

The Rings of the Tree

What the rings of a tree teach us is that

a tree grows even in winter,

And the part that grows in winter is harder than

the part that grows in the summer.
