Proverbe Congolais sur l’Expérience / Congolese Proverb on Experience

PirogueVous ne pouvez savoir si l’eau est froide que si vous la touchez (Proverbe Ntomba – République Démocratique du Congo).- L’expérience est la meilleure conseillère.

You cannot tell whether the water is cold unless you touch it (Ntomba Proverb – Democratic Republic of Congo).- Experience is the best advisor.


  1. Great proverb and it’s very useful. I have to tell myself to try some new things even now.
