Fleur6Le passé appartient aux ancêtres, l’avenir appartient à Dieu, seul le présent t’appartient (proverbe malgache – Madagascar).

The past belongs to the ancestors, the future belongs to God, only the present belongs to you (Malagasy proverb – Madagascar).


  1. I see you’re on a Madagascar kick lately when it comes to proverbs and history. It’s still a great proverb.


    • Yes… I am… I love that country, and their history and suffering at the hand of the French is very similar to that of the Algerians and Cameroonians with the genocides perpetrated prior and after ‘independence’.

      • That’s great how you love Madagascar, too. I’m glad you have that sense of humanity an sympathizing with other groups that have went through the same trauma. I really respect that.


      • Thanks… I am truly touched.
