In Africa, grandparents traditionally share their wisdom about life and culture, using proverbs and stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. This enriching collection includes 365 proverbs—one for each day of the year—partnered with brief yet profound lessons covering many facets of life. Collected from countries across the African continent, these proverbs include, "When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground," "We will water the thorn for the sake of the rose," "A man who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the man doing it," and "Love, like rain, does not choose the grass on which it falls."
