Proverbe sur les familiarités / Proverb on Familiarity



Seaux d’oranges / Buckets of oranges

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.


  1. Africa has so many creatively worded proverbs. I certainly enjoyed that one.
