THE UNCERTAINTIES OF LIFE
In this book entitled, “The uncertainties of Life,” the baby writer, Chinenye H.G Ofokansi exposed life’s
vicissitudes and our reactions to them. She made ample use of metaphors and proverbs. Excerpts from
her book can buttress my assertion.
“Hasty climbers have sudden falls and great haste makes great waste.”
“It is good to make friends, but remember we can live without friends but not without our
neighbours…Trust dies because bad pay poisons him – so it is with friendship.”
“You cannot shoe a running horse neither can you teach old dog new tricks. What is learnt in the
cradle lasts to the tomb.”
“What cannot be cured must be endured…”
This book by the genius of our time is a must-read for all and sundry. The young will learn that time and
tide waits for no man and the old why old birds are not caught with chaff.
