My fourth entry for African Proverb week.  As I described Monday, my 16 year old was assigned an essay in which he was supposed to find an African Proverb and relate it to his life.  He claimed that it was impossible that an African Proverb could describe his life, but having read many in an entertaining quest to prove him wrong, I am inspired to use some of my favorites for posts this week.  Here is one we could all remember more often...

The fool speaks, the wise man listens.

This is a great series, Ben. I hope that your son gets some other assignments like this (I am sure that he won't like that comment!) that you can blog.
