You have little power over what is not yours

You cannot discuss your malaria problem with a musquito

If you pick up one end of the stick you also pick up the other.

An intelligent enemy is better than a stupid friend

Where water is the boss, there the ground should obey

The young bird does not crow until it hears the old ones.

If you do not have patience you cannot make beer.

Teeth do not see poverty

The night has ears

The child you sired hasn’t sired you.

Even the best cooking pot will not produce food.
