If a cat is the only barber in the city, then the rat will surely grow an Afro.
A river that forgets its source will run dry.
Long may be the tilling and the sowing may be late but the fruit will ripen if you toil and wait.
Time is like a river, you cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
If Friday is going to be sweet, you will know by Thursday.
