SAYINGS OF THE SAGES

– The Maximum Maxims of Yoruba People

YORUBA: A tìt’orí ọ̀tẹ̀, a l’ẹ́gbẹ̀rin ọ̀rẹ́. Bí irinwó bá ńbú’ni, ó yẹ k’írinwó máa yin ni.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: In anticipation of opposition, we have 800 friends. When 400 of them denounce us, the remaining 400 are expected to defend us.

CLARIFICATIONS: Some people set aside some resources in anticipation of unforeseen eventualities. The contingency resources become handy if distresses happen along the line.

IMAGE: Friends.
