A Proverb on Not Giving Up

The river may stop; but you mustn’t stop.

Local Oral Tradition

This proverb is a call for endurance. Rivers don’t tend to run dry and stop completely. And in this dry part of the world, when they do, it’s a disaster. This proverb is an encouragement to keep going no matter what, “come hell or high water.”
