Proverbe sur les Plaisirs du Monde / Proverb on World’s Pleasures


Sel / Salt

Le sel est bon à la bouche, mais pas au coeur (Proverbe Ekonda – RDC). Les plaisirs du monde ne donnent pas le bonheur.

Salt is good in the mouth, but not for the heart (Ekonda proverb – DRC). The world’s pleasures do not give happiness.


  1. That is a powerful proverb. Ignoring the low-hanging fruit about what too much sodium can to to the body, it shows how possessions are only temporary much like a salty taste to an appetizing food. The imagery is innovative here.


    • I like the way you put it… thanks for sharing!
