i just wanted to know what these proverbs meant from the book "Things Fall Apart"

first one: " If I fall down for you and you fall down for me , it is play"

second one: "If one finger brought oil it soiled the others"

  • English - ,

    The first one means that the people are on equal ground, neither harming one another. Neither is pushing the other down; therefore it is "play", not agression.

    The second one means that if one person in a group does something dishonorable, that action soils the whole group. Were I to do something dishonorable, then my whole family/community community would be affected.
