"Nsonso soro nsonso soro nsonso" - everything leads into something else.

"Onwee ebe uzo Aro za di nso, Ebe owula igasara anya" - the road to prosperity is not easy.

"Atuo nti na ali a nu opi ndanda" - you will learn more when you listen.

"Egbe si na umu Ugo agaghi ano ndu na egbukwa umu nke yo" - If you dont let your fellow human being live, you too will not live.
