Proverbs from Niger
If the owner of the goat is not afraid to travel by night, the owner of a hyena certainly will not be.
The cry of the hyena and the loss of the goat are one.
Abundance will make cotton pull a stone.
Every fault is laid at the door of the hyena, but it does not steal a bale of cloth.
Accomplishment of purpose is better than making a profit.
