Proverbe Tanzanien sur la myopie intellectuelle/ Tanzanian Proverb on Shortsightedness?

Stars and moon_1

Etoiles et lune / Stars and moon (Source: Universite Paris Diderot)

Je vous ai montré les étoiles et la lune, mais vous n’avez vu que le bout de mon doigt! (proverbe Tanzanien – Tanzanie)

I pointed out the stars and moon to you, but all you saw was the tip of my finger! (Tanzanian proverb – Tanzania)


  1. Wow, that is a highly unique proverb and highly accurate.


  2. […] Dr. Y.: Here’s a change of pace when it comes to content. Dr. Y and his blog Afrolegends is a goldmine of blogging quality. This Cameroonian blogger is an expert on African history and culture from all over the continent and I have learned way more from his site than I have in all my years of schooling (Kindergarten all the way to the university level!). I also have him to thank for being exposed to African movies, music, proverbs, and other great things. […]


    • Thank you for the compliment. I truly appreciate it.
