Pwovèb Ayisyen / Haitian Proverbs

Haitian Proverbs

Sa je pa we, ke pa tounen

(What the eye doesn’t see, will not move the heart)

Ou kouri pou lapli, wal tombe nan basin

(You start running because of the rain, but end up falling in a basin)

Jou fèy tonbe nan dlo, se pa jou li pouri

(A leaf doesn’t wilt the same day it falls in water)

Pwomès se dèt

(A promise is a debt)

Do any of these sound familiar? If they do, it’s probably because you’ve been guilty of saying them, or someone in your family keeps saying them to you. Either way, Haitian Proverbs play a big part in Haitian culture. We’ve all had someone forewarn us or teach us a lesson by reciting these proverbs.

Please share with us your favorite Haitian Proverb.
