Remember the good advice African Proverbs gave you today.


An army of sheep led by a lion can defeat an army of lions led by sheep.
Everyone thinks their own spit tastes good.
By a sweet tongue and kindness, you can drag an elephant with a strand of hair.
The spider and fly cannot make a bargain.
The lion does not turn around when a small dog barks.
Those who refuse to obey cannot command.
War ends nothing.
