Proverb Monday, #36

Proverb: Aboa no pε kɔkɔɔ ayε nti na ɔde ne ho kɔtwere sie.
Meaning: An animal that wants to become red, rubs itself against an anthill.
Context: If you want to achieve something, you take actions necessary to do so*.
No. 943 in Bu me Bε by Peggy Appiah et al.

*If you want to achieve something you go to where you can achieve it or you associate with the right people or individuals who can offer that help (my own interpretation).
