Proverb Monday

Okay so it isn't Monday today! I forgot to search for the appropriate proverb yesterday so here it is today.

Proverb: Aboa no nya wo na ɔre nka wo a, ɔmfee ne se nkyerε wo
Translation: If the animal won't bite you, it won't bare its teeth to you
Usage: Take caution from threats. This is mostly used in advising an individual who has had altercations with another person.
