Motivating African Proverbs.

"He who marries a beauty marries trouble." (Nigeria) - This proverb need not only be applied to our relationships, but to life in respect to the things we choose to commit to, material or other.

"Without retaliation, evils would one day become extinct from the world." (Nigeria) - So many wars have been carried on in the name of historical "beefs" or because of the mindset that if you cut me, I must shoot you. This does not create a climate where change or peace can be cultivated.

"To be without a friend is to be poor indeed." (Tanzania) - Healthy relationships will always outlast money. I believe so many people should incorporate this knowledge into their day-to-day.

"If you damage the character of another, you damage your own." (Yoruba) - It's so ugly to go out of your way to ruin someone's reputation. And yes, it makes you look horrific.

"Sleep is the cousin of death." (Congo) - I once thought Nas created this line. Hip Hop is so intelligent.

"Sleep is the cousin of death." I thought Nas came up with that for a while too ha. Words to live by.
