Tsumo - Shumo

Shungu dzinomona kana musungo wapotsa.

Grief grips (the heart) if a set snare misses (its target).

When people fail to achieve what they have firmly hoped to get they become very disappointed. For instance, an employee will be very worried if his hopes for promotion are not fulfulled.

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