The nuts from a palm tree don’t fall without dragging a few leaves with it. No matter how full the river, it still wants to grow. Don’t cut off the monkey’s tail before it is dead. Pride goes only as far as one can spit. The iron never takes advice from the hammer. Little by little grow the bananas. The white man never forgets Europe. The mother-in-law shows you her thighs without shame, you are the embarrassed one. A cat goes to a monastery, but she still remains a cat. One knife will not cut another knife; one cheat will not cheat another cheat. Those who inherit fortunes are frequently more of a problem than those who made them. Mothers-in-law are hard of hearing.
