Pieces of the Past

Pieces of the PastProverbs can be defined as short excerpts from stories about life's lessons. Replete as they are with cultural symbolism, proverbs convey important ideas about human nature, health and social relations that often transcend their culture of origin, even though occasionally to fully understand their meaning some grounding in that culture is helpful. Just log on to http://jamaica-gleaner.com/pages/history/ for more interesting proverbs.
