If you haven’t been to two marketplaces, you don’t know which the best value is. He who speaks does not know that the listener is smart. One hand does not pick up the flour. After beating milk, butter is obtained. Everything has an end, except the banana which has two. Every birth is the rebirth of an ancestor. The hen cannot say thank you to the mortar. A friend is better than a brother of the same mother. One can only believe the fish that says the eye of the crocodile is rotten. Patience is a golden path. An axe does not cut down a tree by itself.
