“You must treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It is loaned to you by your children.” This proverb means that the earth needs to be taken care of because it is not ours but our childrens. "It takes a whole village to raise a child.” This proverb means to raise a child right it is best done by a supporting community. “The hunger that has hope for its satisfaction does not kill.” This proverb deals with the time between planting time and harvest time in Nigeria. During this time of ugali many people are without much food. This means that if you have hope the hunger will not kill you. “The Earth moves at different speeds depending on who you are.” This proverb means that everyone is different and life's journey changes depending on the person. “Proverbs are the palm oil with which words are eaten.” Palm oil is cooking oil used by Africans so this proverb shows the importance and every day use of proverbs in African society.
