Matshona Dhliwayo
“You meet many wolves in sheep’s clothing;
you are prey until they find out
you have the heart of a lion.
You meet many snakes in the grass;
you are in danger until you burn
the plain in which they hide.

Worse than a hostile enemy
is an accomplished, secret one.
Worse than a foolish superior
is an impenitent, arrogant one.
Worse than a sage's rebuke
is life's chastisement.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
