No matter how beautiful and well-crafted a coffin might look,
it will not make anyone wish for death.
Nobody is born wise.
The chicken that digs for food
will not sleep hungry.
The most beautiful fig may contain a worm.
The wise create proverbs for fools to learn,
not to repeat.
There is always a winner
even in a monkey’s beauty contest.
There is no beauty but the beauty of action.
To be without a friend is to be poor indeed.
To run is not necessarily to arrive.
To try and to fail is not laziness.
Sierra Leonean Proverb
