Akan Proverbs


1. If all the seeds that fall were to grow, then no one could follow the path under the trees.

2. If an ass goes a-traveling, he'll not come home a horse.

3. Marriage is like a groundnut: you have to crack them to see what is inside.

4. The family is like the forest: if you are outside, it is dense; if you are inside, you see that each tree has its own position.

5. The rain wets the leopard's spots but does not wash them off.
