Selected African Proverbs is a collection of proverbs from the Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria. Igbo people traditionally use proverbs in their conversation, ceremonies and in the course of doing business. Some of the proverbs in this collection first appeared in print in Chinua Achebe's iconic novel, Things Fall Apart. These proverbs, rich in humor, wisdom and exotic flavor are bound to appeal to readers eager to explore quotes and wise sayings from alternative sources with an African perspective.
