Every mickle mek a mockle.Every little adds up.
Feel like Gumbeh drum widout a goat-skin.To feel out of place.
Finger stink you can’t cut it trow it wey.Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.
Fish-bone no lodge in a pickney troat aloneMisfortune is no respecter of persons.
Frog never gargle him troat till him tiase fresh water.One does not rejoice without reason.
Fry de bigh fish fust, te lilly one after.Attend to the most important matters first.
Haad iyaz pick’ni bu’n a sun hot.Children (or anyone) who don’t hear, (don’t take good advice)(hard ears)will encounter great hardship in life.
