Other People’s Wisdom

  • by

In our #WisdomWednesdays series we share Yorùbá òwe or proverbs from Prof. Oyekan Owomoyela’s Yoruba Proverbs. Some of the òwe can be read here.

As you know our mission is to encourage creative expansion. One way to choose to do that is through the expression of African thoughts in an African way. We show each òwe in both N’Ko script and in the latin script. Below we offer our interpretation. Share yours with us on instagram @olona.de or email us!

Today’s proverb:

Ogbon ologbon la fi nsogbon; imoran enikan o to boro.
One learns wisdom from other people's wosdom; one persons knowledge does not amount to anything. (Wisdom and knowledge are best shared.)

That is to say, we’re hiring.

We enjoy bringing distinction to individuals, companies, and organizations by creating deeply felt patterns. You probably know a company in need of a special look. Perhaps a restauranteur needing wallpaper, for a more harmonious atmosphere. Maybe, you know an interior designer that has been affected by the pandemic and can’t find the designs in the market that truly reflect the unique personalities of their clients. The same could be said for a friend that may have recently bought a home. Anyways I believe that, although those examples may not fit you exactly, you know someone who might be need of my services. I believe this so much, I’m willing to put 10% of the final sale price in your pocket.
