Many African proverbs are strongly tied to the earth and animals, conveying lessons of life and learning often through daily, seemingly menial, procedures

Many African proverbs are strongly tied to the earth and animals, conveying lessons of life and learning often through daily, seemingly menial, procedures. An example of a Zimbabwean proverb is there is honey but no bees - describing a situation when you find something free for the taking and without consequence. Here’s a list of African proverbs from around the continent. Some are known to come from specific tribes, ethnic groups, or countries, and others have an unknown source and are listed simply as African proverbs. Have a read and pluck out some ancestral insight from the motherland. This is not an African state of mind. WE are now African-American isn't it still a cow!?!? Do BLACK LIVES really matter?

A collection of proverbs, fables, riddles, songs, poetry, and quotes shares uplifting African wisdom and includes such tidbits as, "Do not look for speed in a cheap horse--be content if it neighs." Original.
  • After receiving the book and beginning to read the proverbs I was disappointed with the contents. I was expecting the proverbs to be more definitive and clear. I would not recommend this book to others for purchase.

  • The proverbs are great, the riddles are fine, but there are many quotations, excerpts, and even holidays! I would have preferred the author would have limited to one proverb per day! That way the book would have been wonderful!

  • A great little book. I had been looking for books in print containing African Proverbs and wisdom. I was amazed to find many of the proverbs had corresponding proverbs from the writings of King Solomon in the Old Testament book of Proverbs. Glad to add this to my collection.

  • Great collection of African tradition!

  • This little gem of a book is truly wonderful and inspiring! Proverbs, sayings, historical and cultural information spanning both Africa and the African Diaspora are all included. Educational AND enjoyable. Highly recommended!
