A chattering bird build no nest.
If you climb up a tree, you must climb down the same tree.
When a needle falls into a deep well, many people will look into the well, but few will be ready to go down after it.
It is not what you are called but what you answer to.
Not to know is bad, not to wish to know is worse.
The one being carried does not realise how far away the town is.
The mediocre brags in the absence of the grand masters.
A person once bitten by a snake, would be scared by an old rope.
Not everyone who chased the zebra caught it, but he who chased it caught it.
The Earth moves at different speeds depending on who you are.
Proverbs are the palm oil with which words are eaten.
The Mouse that makes jest of a cat has already seen a hole nearby.
When you have a lot to do, start with a meal.
The hand that rocks the cradle rules the nation and its destiny.
A ripened fruit does not cling to the vine.

Tolu Falode.
