Proverbe Ethiopien pour le besoin d’un seul Chef / Ethiopian Proverb on the Need for One Chief


Fagot / bundle

Pour lier mille morceaux de bois, une écorce suffit (Proverbe Amhara – Ethiopie). – Un bon chef suffit pour tout un people.

To tie one thousand pieces of wood, one rope is enough (Amhara proverb – Ethiopia). – A good king is enough for an entire people.


  1. Agree but it is important the knot tied to keep the rope in place to hold the 1000 pieces of wood together is ” tied” by a very experienced person


    • Totally agree with you Colin. A good rope is needed.
