L’oeil ne mange pas l’orange, mais il sait qu’elle est douce (Proverbe Mandingue – Mali, Guinée, Côte d’Ivoire). – Entre familiers on se connaît.
The eye does not eat the orange, but it knows that it is sweet (Mandinka proverb – Mali, Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire). – Among familiar people, we know each other.
