Past years are in moonlight, the years to come are in darkness

Past years are in moonlight, the years to come are in darkness

Would it be a relief to know what comes next in life, to foresee the outcome before it occurred? The Kenyan proverb "The past years are in moonlight, the years to come are in darkness," teaches the past is revealed because it has been unveiled, however, no matter the clever gadgets and predictions, the future remains unknown.




The past years are in moonlight, the years to come are in darkness. ~ Kenyan Proverb



A proverb is to speech what salt is to food. Proverbs, however quaintly expressed, contain the essence of some moral truth or practical lesson; they are drawn from real life, and are generally the fruit of philosophy grafted on the stem of experience.
