Famous Jamaican Proverbs

Trouble doesn’t give signs like the rain

Learn to crawl before you walk

I threw my corn but I didn’t call any fowl

One by one cocoa can full a basket

Time is longer than a rope

To see me and come live with me are two different things

When a cocoa is ripe it will burst

Those who really want something cannot get it, those who are always getting things do not want it

A ghost knows whom to frighten

Chicken is merry, a hawk is nearby

See and blind, hear and deaf

I came here to drink milk, I didn’t come to count cows

Feel sorry for a hungry dog, then he turns around and bite you

Every hoe has their thicket of bushes

A cock’s mouth causes its death

What tastes good to a goat will later upset his stomach

Every little makes something

I didn’t come here to hear that a horse is dead and a cow is fat

Fire is at a mouse’s tail, he thinks it’s cool breeze

I am old but I am not cold
