Dìgbòlugi-dìgbòlùùyàn ò jẹ́ ká mọ ajá tòótọ́.
The mad dog, and the person who behaves like a mad dog, both make it impossible for one to know the real dog.
(He who acts like a dog makes himself the equal of a dog.)

Dídákẹ́ lerín dákẹ́; àjànàkú ló lẹgàn.
The elephant has only chosen to remain silent; to the elephant belongs the forest.
(The mighty need not proclaim their importance.)
