Wise African Proverbs


Intelligence has its advantages but you can be intelligent without being wise. Wisdom goes beyond intelligence and those who think of themselves as intelligent and put down others for not being book smart are certainly not wise.


When you speak, know that which can be brought against you.


Every man must act in the rhythm of his time, such is wisdom.

The wise man never takes a step too long for his leg.



The opinion of the intelligent is better than the certainty of the fool.




Follow the saint no further than his doorstep.




You become wise when you begin to run out of money.
