Proverbe sur la force / Proverb on Strength



L’éléphant mange même les fruits du palmier borassus (Proverbe Mangbetu – République Démocratique du Congo (RDC)). – Un homme fort est capable de réaliser beaucoup.


Borassus palm tree

The elephant eats even the fruits from the Borassus palm tree (Mangbetu proverb – Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)). – A strong man is able to achieve a lot.


  1. It did take me a while to get the imagery given how those trees aren’t from America, but I got it now. Thanks for the proverb. I really enjoy learning these sayings associated with this heritage I found out about late last year.
