THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*Even an ant can hurt an elephant.

*Do not forget what is to be a sailor because of being a captain yourself.

*A joyful leader is not ignored.

*What you cannot see during the day, you will not see at night.

*A toad does not jump around in the daytime for nothing.

*What forgets is the axe, but the tree that has been axed will never forget.

*What has horns must not be hidden in a sack.

*He who asks questions cannot avoid the answers.

*Home affairs are not talked about on the public square.

*A proverb is the mirror of the community.

*A man that does not lie shall never marry.

*Proverbs are the palm oil with which words are eaten.

*Be glad you are unknown, for when you are known, you would wish you weren't.

*The mouse is silent while labouring, but when the baby is conceived, she cried.

*If two wise men always agree, then there is no need for one of them.
