Wolof Proverbs

“Ndànk-ndànk mooy jàpp golo cib ñaay.”

Little by little, one catches the monkey in the forest.

“Ku boot bukki, xaj baw la.

Whoever carries a hyena on his back, the dogs will bark at you.

“Bant, lu mu yàgg yàgg cig dex, du tax mu soppiku jasig.”

No matter how long a log soaks in the river, it will never become a crocodile.
