Chewa Proverb Collection

Kukoma sikulingana ndi kudziwika.
To have a good behaviour is not the same as to be known.
(Do not brag "Everyone knows me". Thieves also are known by everybody. Good behaviour is more important than to be known. Be good and forget about being known.)
Proverb No 355 collected by Toon van Kessel

Bemba Proverb Collection

Ulubuli talwabuka mumana.
A quarrel must not cross the river. (One must not drag the whole countryside in one's quarrels. If your companion gives up you must not continue with the fight, you certainly must not chase him.)
Nga mulelwa, umubiyo abutuka ninshi capwa; nga wamukonka nakuntu abutukila ninshi wewamulandu niwe nangu ewacikubala.
