Proverbe sur l’avarice / Proverb on Stinginess


Maison / House

Si rien ne sort de ta maison, rien n’entrera (Proverbe Kirundi – Burundi) – Avarice.

If nothing leaves your house, then nothing will get in (Kirundi proverb – Burundi). – Stinginess.


  1. Dr. Y, your English translation puzzles me. The French version seems to make more sense: “If nothing leaves your house (i.e. if you hoard everything), then nothing will come into your house (no love, no riches …)” — but the English translation on your post is confusing. Is there a reason why you inverted the phrases??


    • Thank you Vaincotes… I made the changes.
