Swahili Proverb of the Day #3

"Usiache Mbacho Kwa Msala Upitao"

This little gem literally means, "Don't throw out your old prayer mat for a new one." In other words, don't be so quick to discard that which is known to you and familiar, just because you see something shiny and new. Or don't discard old friends for new ones. Word.
