Sudanese Proverbs

Even if a log lies in the water for a long time, it does not become a crocodile. 

We desire to bequest two things to our children – the first one is roots; the other one is wings. 

You can’t feed your donkey only when you need to ride it. 

Love for something makes a man blind and deaf. 

Not all the trees in the forest make good firewood. 

Our wasted days are the days we never laugh. 

If you are wearing shoes, you don’t fear the thorns. 

Someone who is pointing his finger to another person is not always aware that the four remaining fingers are pointing in his direction.
