Proverbe sur l’Avarice / Proverb on Greediness


Chien / Dog

Le chien s’est dechiré la gueule en mangeant de trop grands morceaux (Proverbe Azande – République Centrafricaine, République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), Sud Soudan). – Ne pas avoir les yeux plus grands que le ventre.

The dog tore its mouth while eating very big pieces (Azande proverb – Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), South Sudan). Do not have eyes bigger than the stomach.


  1. Oof! That certainly is a painful way to describe greed.
