THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*If you are building a house and a nail breaks, do you stop building or do you change the nail?

*Do not tell the man who is carrying you that he stinks.

*To be without a friend is to be poor indeed.

*Every camel was once upon a time two years old.

*It takes a whole village to raise a child.

*It is better to refuse than to accept and not go.

*Rain beats a leopard's skin, but it does not wash out the spots.
 
*To engage in conflict, one does not bring a knife that cuts but a needle that sews.

*Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.

*Sickness accompanies a waning moon; a new moon cures disease.

*He who asks questions cannot avoid the answers.

*When your neighbor is wrong you point a finger, but when you are wrong you hide.
 
*Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree.

*One camel does not make fun of the other camel's hump.

*Always be in a hurry does not prevent death, neither does going slowly prevents living.

*The death of an elderly man is like a burning library.

*Hope is the pillars of the world.

*Birth is the only remedy against death.

*Talking with one another is loving one another.

*A little rain everyday will fill the rivers to overflowing.

*Good millet is known at the harvest.

*Earth is the queen of beds.

*A friend is someone you share the path with.
