Proverb: Abofra bɔ nwa na ɔmmɔ akyekyere
Transliteration: A child breaks the snail but not the tortoise.
Meaning: The softer and edible part of the snail and the tortoise is hidden in their shells and this shell has to be broken in order to reach this part. However, the shell of the snail is weaker than the tortoise's, which is hard. Thus, this proverb means that one has to act according to one's strengths. If you are a child you do things that children do, if you are old you do things that the elderly do. It is applicable to all aspects of life; hence order and responsibility is the key.
