As we sat around the kitchen table today, our West African Peace Corps son shared a few proverbs from his village which then evolved into a discussion on Africa and the wise sayings from that continent. In the next 7000 or so days, this blog will feature many of the sage proverbs we can all learn and aspire to include in our daily lives.
From Togo and specifically Tamimou--David's friend and mentor for two years:
To make an omelet, one must break an egg.
A dog that eats bones has confidence in his ass.
The tortoise's time will eventually reach its destination.
When the dogs are hunting, stay inside.
|David with Tamimou and his family in Togo|
Here are a few more to consider. ‘Children of Saba’ is an exciting 3-part series of novels – an epic tale of power, honour, glory, majesty, adventure, filled with the proverbs and wisdom of our African forefathers. ‘Children of Saba’ is now available on AMAZON.COM.
