- A hunter’s meal is in proportion to his skill.
- If you follow the herd, people may mistake you for a cow.
- One who fishes in shallow waters limits the kind of fish he can catch.
- If you feed a bird, you don’t have to force it to come to you.
- Don’t waste time watering a weed hoping to transform it into a flower.
- The sun does not rise abruptly but perseveres until it rules the sky.
- A lion does not earn its crown quarrelling with sheep.
- Stand-alone when it is to your benefit, with others when it is to your advantage, and
- with everyone when it is to your empowerment.
- An army of disciplined sheep is greater than an army of undisciplined wolves.
- Don’t poison a river whose fish you might need tomorrow.
- Never make a promise you can’t keep. Never look down on a person you can’t help. Never solicit a question you can’t answer. Never judge a person you don’t understand. Never condemn a person you don’t know.
- A bee does not need to follow you to give you honey: you follow it. Become a person of value and you too won’t have to beg anyone to follow you.
- If an eagle is teaching you to fly, ignore the advice of turkeys.
- An ambitious wolf will rise above a complacent lion.
A shark does not ask for permission to rule the waters.
United a herd is an army; divided a herd is a fair game. ~Matshona Dhliwayo
