    1. Oh it’s an old proverb. One of my late grandmothers used to say it in Igbo (my mother-tongue). Now I understand–one who doesn’t learn from personal experience or the experiences of others will always continue to make mistakes.

    1. Wow! What a nice coincidence. I believe the proverb dates a long way back. No wonder Chinua (one of favorite authors) who is now old used it. It’s Igbo translation is what I love even more because it’s direct. Thanks for your comment.

        1. No, I’ve not. But we’ve rainmakers around here. It’s believed that they can hold back the rain from falling when there is an outdoor events like traditional marriage or New Yam festival.
