Wisdom Wednesday: Malawian Proverbs 🇲🇼🍃

•Don't think there are no crocodiles just because the water's calm.

•If you have, give; if you need, seek.

•You cannot pick up a pebble with one finger.

•When a dead tree falls, the woodpeckers profit from his death.

•It is the fate of the coconut husk to float, for the stone to sink

•As a child, is a man wrapped in his mother's womb; as an adult, in tradition; comes death, and he is wrapped in earth.

Crime leaves a trail like a water beetle; like a snail, it leaves its silver track; like a horse-mango, it leaves its smell.

•Do not be like the mosquito that bites the owner of the house.

A piece of incense may be as large as the knee, but unless burned emits no fragrance.

•He can see a louse as far away as China but is not aware of an elephant on his nose.

•One muddy buffalo makes the whole herd dirty.
