English to Venda Translations for Famous Quotes & Proverbs
Nelson Mandela: "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." "Arali na amba na muthu nga luambo lune a lu pfesesa, zwi ya ṱhohoni yawe. Arali na amba na muthu nga luambo lwawe, zwi ya mbiluni yawe."
Seneca: "If you wish to be loved, love." "Arali ni tshi ṱoḓa u funwa, funani”
Leonard Cohen: "Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove. Dance me to the end of love." “Ntakuleni sa tavhi ḽa muoḽivi ni nnyise hayani sa ḽiivha ḽo livhaho hayani. Ni tshine na nṋe u swika magumoni a lufuno.”
Mahatma Gandhi: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." "Ni fanela u vha tshanduko ine na tama u i vhona shangoni."
Aristotle: "All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth." "Vhoṱhe vhe vha rabela nga ha kuvhusele kwa vhathu vha a zwi ḓivha uri maanḓa a muvhuso a bva kha u funzwa ha vhaswa."
Chinese Proverb: “Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.” "Na mmbudza ndi ḓo hangwa; na ntsumbedza khamusi ndi nga zwi humbula; na ndzhenisa khazwo ndi hone ndi tshi ḓo zwi pfesesa."
