Proverbe Bamiléké sur la prudence/ Bamileke Proverb on caution

Une lance / A spear

Une lance / A spear



Quand on a qu’une lance, on ne doit pas s’en servir contre un léopard (Proverbe Bamiléké – Cameroun). – On ne s’amuse pas avec ce qu’on ne peut pas perdre sans danger grave.

When you have only one spear, do not use it against a leopard (Bamileke Proverb – Cameroon).-  Do not play with what you cannot afford to lose without real danger.


  1. That’s great advice and the wording is certainly clever.
