African Proverb

Amaaso agamyuka omutezi, ge gamyuka n'akasolo. (Ganda, Uganda ) : The eyes of the trapper are as subject to reddening as those of the small animal (that he pursues). All creatures great and small, despite their apparent differences, all experience similar emotions, strengths and weaknesses. (also: Macho ya mwindaji nayo hugeuka mekundu sawa na mnyama mdogo anayemwinda." in Swahili.)
