It’s Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. I haven’t participated in a few weeks, but I decided this Sunday would be a perfect time for me to get back on track. In honor of Black History Month, I will be using African Proverbs for the month of February. I hope you enjoy them:
*It Take A Village To Raise A Child
Hilary Clinton made this African Proverb famous. It was true than, and it is true now.
*We start As fools and become wise through experience.
None of us are born with tools for life. We learn as we go and from our experiences. I look at each day as a learning experience with the expectation that I will go to bed knowing more than I did when I woke.
*Don’t set sail on someone else’s star
Don’t wish for someone else’s fortune. Be happy for them, but set your own destiny. You will enjoy the experience so much more when you arrive.
*Confiding a secret to an unworthy person is like carrying grain in a bag with a hole.
Oh yes, your secret will leak out little by little. Be careful what you say, and who you say it to.
*There is no medicine to cure hatred
Be kind to one another. When you open your heart to love and respect, there is no room for hatred.
I hope that you have enjoyed these proverbs, I have enjoyed sharing them with you. Let us know which is your favorite, and don’t forget to visit A Daily Dose of Toni for more quotes.
