Tsumo - Shumo

Tsuro pfupi
haitemi uswa hurefu

A short hare does not cut tall grass.

It is not wise to attempt what is beyond one's energies or capabilities.

Much like the English expression "Don't bite off more than you can chew."

-- Shona Proverb
From Tsumo - Shumo by Mordikai A. Hamutyinei and Albert B. Plangger
