It’s well that ends well! Today ends the 3-day proverbs challenge from the works of the master story teller Achebe. There’s a lot more than has been shared here however. You can always get your hands on his works and enjoy it all.
Here we go…
☠ The death that will kill a man begins as an appetite.
🐜The fly that perches on a mound of dung may strut around as it likes, it cannot move the mound.
🎶 Even the flute player must sometimes stop to wipe his nose
⚱️A man who visits a craftsman at work finds a sullen host.
💪 We do not bypass a man and enter his compound.
🎶 When you see an old woman stop in her dance to point again and again in the same direction we can be sure that somewhere there something happened long ago which touched the roots of her life.
🙀 We should first chase away the wild cat; afterwards, we blame the hen.
💯 He is a fool who treats his brother worse than a stranger.
🙍♂️If a man seeks for a companion who acts entirely like himself he’ll live in solitude.
Thanks for been part of the challenge. Blessings!
