kitso ke tshingwana, ge o sa e lemi, o ka se e tlhafule – Lerato Mawela

My strong african proverb goes like “kitso ke tshingwana, ge o sa e lemi, o ka se e tlhafule” – meaning that “knowledge is a garden, if not cultivated then it cannot be harvested”.

This proverb was passed on to me by my father. He always used to say and I quote” just because you know something does not mean your success is guaranteed, but putting a little effort on what you know, will always take you a long way”.
This proverb has truly helped me so much in my life because it pushed me not to only know certain things but to also discover how I can make what I already know to benefit me in the future. I am what I am because of this wisdom that I got from my daddy.
