They are all great advice but my particular favourite is Elmon’s “Loko uhleketa mhelembe khandziya murhi.” Reflect on your past, learn from both your triumphs and mistakes and plan today so that you can reach your goals tomorrow. Great blog Ryan, thank you for sharing all of these very wise Shangaan proverbs.

I agree Jill – “A rhino can’t jump on a tree” is my favourite too, followed closely by Glory Manzini’s words of wisdom.

They are all words of wisdom that every child should heed.

Love it Raihaan. I heard another yesterday: “A single arrow is easily broken, but ten in a bundle aren’t.”
