Every demon has its own tree
My good friend and I were discussing about other people's love lives.
Alright, alright we were gossiping. At some point, we concurred on how so-and-so was such a difficult person that we couldn't understand how they could find a partner.
Or if they already had a partner, we couldn't believe it.
(I know, that was mean but I'm being completely honest with you).
After we batted remarks back and forth, my friend was silent for a while and he said : "In Africa (he's African, by the way), we have a saying. Every demon has its own tree."
Every whut? I said. Are you calling other people demons, Paul? (His name is Paul).
My friend explained that no matter what sort of person you were, you would very likely find someone who likes you. Or someone who is willing to marry you.
Because in Africa, every demon has its own tree and somewhere to live.
So even someone the majority finds undesirable can rest in the presence of another person who appreciates him or her in all their glory.
Now, that saying comes to mind everytime the same topic pops up.
Indeed, every demon has its own tree. What's your favorite saying?
