If you are reading this and attending my funeral, can you remind them that I want my eulogy to only be a list of African proverbs?
100 articles, and I wanted to share with you the circle of wisdom that guided me here.
I have always been attracted by proverbs in general and African proverbs in particular.
I would love to sit with you and tell you more about it.
My love of proverbs, why and where has been described by Mulenga Kapwepwe in her TED talk:
What are the 10 African proverbs that I live by?
What do they mean to me?
Before I share my top 10 list with you, I want to walk you through the selection process quickly.
I could spend my whole life reading and learning from thousands of African proverbs.
I chose the most straightforward way: YouTube.
Here is a list of 100 African proverbs: 100 AFRICAN PROVERBS TO LIVE BY.
I watched the video multiple times and made a first selection.
How many did I pick knowing that my target is 10?
Can you guess?
25 proverbs in the first round, which is quite good for a first round.
