THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*The goat thought it was dirtying the owner's wall till it realized its coat was peeling.

*Do not make the dress before the child is born.

*A strong man is remembered on the day of the fight, and a glutton on the day pounded yam is surplus.

*A farmer does not conclude his farm is ripe without opening it for close examination.

*A child can play with his mother's breasts, but not with his father's testicles.

*When the brothers fight to the death, the stranger inherits their father's estate.

*Do not blame God for having created the tiger, but thank Him for not having given it wings.

*A performing masquerade who tries too hard to outclass his colleagues may expose his ass.

*Children are the reward of life.

*If you are looking for a fly in your food it means that you are full.

*When the moon is not full, the stars shine more brightly.

*Money is sharper than a sword.

*By the time the fool has learned the game, the players have dispersed.

*An egg does not fight a rock.

*When you see clouds gathering, prepare to catch rainwater.

*When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.

*The horse that arrives early gets good drinking water.

*He who is guilty is the one who has much to say.

*The crab does not bite, it is its greeting that hurts.
