Things Fall Apart ~

African Proverbs

If a child washes his hands he can eat with kings

-If a child behaves they are rewarded  -You get what you deserve

Let the kite perch and let the eagle perch too. If one says no to the other, let his wing break

-Treat everyone equal  -Treat others the way you would want to be treated

A proud heart can survive a general failure because such a failure does not prick its pride

-people with confidence use failures as lessons learned  -learn from your mistakes

As a man dances, so the drums are beaten for him

-If the man does his own work he is rewarded  -praise is earned

Whenever you see a toad jumping in broad daylight, then you know something is after its life

-there are explainations for everything  -everything happens for a reason
