Proverbe Ewe sur la gourmandise / Ewe Proverb on Greediness


La bouche / the mouth

Quand la bouche est pleine, la barbe reçoit les miettes (Proverbe Ewe – Ghana, Togo). – A être gourmand, on se salit.


Homme avec barbe / Man with beard

When the mouth is full, the beard receives the crumbs (Ewe proverb – Ghana, Togo).- Being greedy leads to getting dirty.


  1. There is literal truth to this, but that proverb makes a ton of sense.
