Uganda Proverbs

A dog with a bone in his mouth cannot bite you. 

Caution is not cowardice; even the ants march armed. 

Death is a scar that never heals. 

He who is bitten by a snake fears a lizard. 

If he has thrown the only spear he had at you, it means that he doesn’t fear you. 

If you climb up a tree, you must climb down the same tree. 

It is better that trials come to you in the beginning and you find peace afterwards than that they come to you at the end. 

Sickness accompanies a waning moon; a new moon cures disease. 

The bird that pecks at a rock trusts in the strength of its beak. 

The path to your heart’s desire is never overgrown.
