Proverb Monday, #56 - A Year After

It has been a year since I started this series. Over the years interests, in terms of comments and clicks, have decreased over time; however, I persisted. I decided some time ago to do away with it. I don't know exactly what I am going to replace it with but I do know that today's proverb, the fifty-sixth, could be the last on this blog. Thanks to all who visited, read, and/or commented. I appreciate your dedication. On a second thought, I think creating content for those who would be searching Ghanaian proverbs would not be a bad idea. So that even though traffic might be low today, it might be good for other researchers.

Proverb: Onipa bεyε bi, na w'amεyε ne nyinaa
Translation: A person came to do his part, but not to do all
Context: You can only do your part and that's what is most important.


  1. I like this. It's similar to what we say in the U.S.: All you can do is all you can do and all you can do is enough!

  2. @Shannon, the similarities are there...

  3. You could replace it with Short Story Mondays? I read these proverbs just don't have a whole lot to say, is all? LOL.

  4. Yes, that'll be it. Short Story Monday.

  5. .. and you sure chose a significant one for today.
    Thanks for the ride on Proverb Monday.
    I enjoyed it

    1. thanks. Glad you saw the implication. lol
