A proverb reflects and reveals a community's culture that provides a glimpse into its value systems, beliefs, and ancient folklore, used as an affirmation, or, as support to its reader to understand that they are not alone in their suffering, or winning!

--

It is an age-old tradition to keep folklore alive and every culture has its own dictionary of proverbs, one of the main aims for keeping track of the legacy of lessons is to keep a community enlivened, positive and reaffirmed.

TODAY'S AFRICAN PROVERB: Proverb: Hold a true friend with both hands.

Meaning: Forging a genuine connection with a person you are not related to by blood is special. Therefore, these people-your friends-you need to care and respect them unconditionally. To hold by both hands means to show them love wholly.
