Hope in the Human Heart African Proverbs

African proverbs about hope teach us hope is wanting something to happen and believing it could happen. But, what happens when you are tired of hoping? 

You may believe hope has falsely presented itself as a beacon of light in a storm, allowing you to dream and think things will get better. So why hope? Hope allows people to believe who are currently in a dark place that the sun will eventually rise and the world is not a perpetual night. African proverbs about hope make known to us that there is more to life than what we see, hear, feel or taste. African proverbs on hope show us the four-letter word, hope,  is a necessary part of the human design.

My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
