Proverbs are an important part of African culture. They’ve been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. They’ve valued for their ability to convey wisdom with so few words.

While most are brief, they express ancient wisdom that still applies to our daily lives. There is truth in every line.  African proverbs use the language of the common man/woman to share bits of wisdom to help you walk more easily through life.

For thousands of years, proverbs have been used to illustrate ideas, reinforce arguments, deliver lessons, console, and uplift humanity. Most African proverbs tie natural surroundings like the earth animals to food for thought to make them more relevant to everyday life.
