- Experience is the cane of the blind.
- I don’t want to listen; your words sound like the truth but the truth is probably a sin.
- You cannot eat a cluster of grapes at once, but it is very easy if you eat them one by one.
- Peasants are a rude lot, and hard: life has hardened their hearts, but they are thick and awkward only in appearance; you have to know them. No one is more sensitive to what gives man the right to call himself a man: good-heartedness, bravery and virile brotherhood.
- Misfortune is never invited. And it comes and sits at the table without permission and it eats, leaving nothing but bones.
Roumain was a Haitian writer and politician. He is considered one of the most prominent figures in Haitian literature.
