African pearls

Proverbs contain the philosophy, humour, symbolism and religions of the peoples who use them. The Apostle Paul understood this principle. He borrowed a quote from  Grecian poets to enlighten his audience.  

'As their poets have said' Acts 17:28

The sentiment is universal and not restricted to Greeks or any particular race of poets. I therefore have created this page based on the Apostle Paul’s method to open up a goldmine of Akan proverbs to enrich your mind. Enjoy!
