African Proverbs Prverbs
A proverb is a wise saying, or advice about life, that is handed down from generation to generation. Some English proverbs you may have heard are: Better safe than sorry. Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched. Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. Every cloud has a silver lining. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
