Yorùbá Proverbs, Translation With Morals

4

Yorùbá Proverbs are known to be wise sayings from the aged ones or elders which are passed through generations to teach some historical lessons, or to highlight good morals, and also to instil social values. One of the beauty of it is the use by a younger person, whereby he or she is prohibited to in the presence of an older person, without prior permission to do such. Enjoy some if these highlighted Yorùbá Proverbs. 1. Ẹni tó gbé ìlù rẹ̀ kọ́ apá, ayé ńbáa lùú, áḿbọ̀tórí ẹni tó gbé tirẹ̀ kọ́ igi tó ṣeré lọ. Translation The person who hung his drum on his elbow still had the drum beaten by others, not to mention someone who hung his on a tree (branch) and walked away. No complacency.
