African Proverb of the Day: Two Sides of a Story

African Proverb: Until the lion has his or her own storyteller, the hunter will always have the best part of the story.

Interpreted Meaning: There are always two parts to every story. The person telling his portion will always be the one to make it sound as if they were the victor against terrible odds – or the victim of some horrible deed. Everyone embellishes their version of a story. You can’t know the truth of the matter until you hear the other half. Then, usually the real truth is somewhere in the middle.
