Proverbe sur la loi de la gravité et l’Absolu / Proverb on the Law of Gravity and the Absolute


Oiseau / Bird

Le cadavre d’un oiseau ne pourrit pas en l’air, mais à terre (Proverbe Douala – Cameroun). – Tout revient à son point de départ.

A bird’s corpse does not rot in the air, but on the ground (Duala proverb – Cameroon). Everything comes back to where it started.


  1. It reminds me of the phrase “what goes up, must come down” although the imagery is far more creative in this proverb.


    • Yes… indeed.

      • Definitely. It’s interesting how that proverb was worded, yet it has a similar meaning.
