THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*A smart opportunist can be an intellectual moron.

*No matter how powerful one is, one can never make rain the fall only on his own home.

*Even the best dancer on the stage must retire sometime.

*You can't scare a monkey with a dead baboon.

*Not everyone who chased the zebra caught it, but he who caught it chased it.

*A weaning baby that does not cry aloud will die on its mother's back.

*The person who loves you warns you.

*Where two rivers meet, the waters are never calm.

*The humble pay for the mistakes of their leaders.

*If you find no fish, you have to eat bread.

*Discord between the powerful is a fortune for the poor.

*If a child watches his hands, he can eat with kings.

*If there is cause to hate someone, the cause to love has just begun.

*Greatness is not achieved through violence.

*If you want to walk fast, walk alone; if you want to walk far, walk with others.

*Better a single decision maker than a thousand advisors.

*It is better to be a lion for a day than to be a sheep all your life.

*He who thinks he is leading and has no one following him is only taking a walk.

*He who has a leader is the master of his burden.
