Wednesday Wisdom for Expats

I love this quote. No matter what obstacles stand in your way, even if it seems impossible - do it anyway.

Olga of The European Mama made a great point that I should share: this quote is a great quote, but is completely untrue. The idea that the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly comes from 'folklore' and if the story is to be believed originates from a drunken aerodynamicist. If an aeroplane was built like a bee, it would indeed not fly as the wings are too small. However, a bee works more like a helicopter hence why the fabulous busy buzzy bumblebee does in fact fly!

Now, don't say you haven't learnt anything today......
