Proverbe sur les caractères cachés ou la duplicité / Proverb on Hidden Nature or Deceitfulness

Water stagnant2

Eau stagnante / Stagnant water

Les eaux stagnantes sont mangeuses d’hommes (Proverbe Luba – République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), Zambie, Angola). Méfiez-vous des gens qui ne disent rien.

Stagnant waters are man eaters (Luba proverb – Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Zambia, Angola). Beware of people who do not say anything.


  1. That is a macabre, yet very useful proverb. The imagery really shows how dangerous people can be when they’re silent.
