– The Golden Rule
YORUBA: Ènìyàn ló k’ẹ́ṣin l’óró; ẹṣin ò n’íkà nínú. Wọ́n so’dẹ wẹ́rẹ́wẹ́rẹ́ pa’pọ̀, wọ́n fi k’ẹ́ṣin l’ẹ́nun..
ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: Humans imparted ruthlessness to horse; horse lacked cruelty. They stringed together tiny brass harness and yoked the horse.
CLARIFICATIONS: Most humans are kind and rational by nature. They are willing to assist fellow humans who are in need. Unfortunately, a lot of people are anxious about helping others, because of the cheeky, spiteful, and unappealing stories they hear about those who took perfidious advantage of their helpers.
