THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*Where there is a head, one does not put a hat on the knee.

*Where water is the boss there the land must obey.

*An elephant will reach the roof of the house.

*A wise man can not save a decaying country as manure can not save an eroding land.

*Even the lion, the king of the forest, protects himself against flies.

*Around a flowering tree there are many insects.

*A house can not be repaired when the owner is destroying it.

*A quarrelsome chief does not hold a village together.

*Those who accomplish great things pay attention to little ones.

*A community without elders does not prosper.

*Where the chief walks, the disputes are settled.

*Being happy is better than being king.
