African Proverb Of The Week


The moment I think of African proverbs, wisdom is what comes to mind. African proverbs were and still are a means through which wisdom is shared but above all, these proverbs are geared at guiding us and to a certain extent think out of the box. Our elders' expression through proverbs is a great way to enlighten us on what life is about through the eyes of the elders however, interpretation and understanding of proverbs is our responsibility in the end. If we don't take their meaning into consideration, we are then held accountable.



African proverbs vary from different aspects such as wisdom, wealth, learning, leadership, unity, friendship, patience and the list goes on.



This brings me to our African Proverb of the week. 

Do not let what you cannot do tear from your hands what you can. ~ Ashanti
