Translation of Haitian Creole text:


We look, but we do not see everything.
We speak, but we don’t say it all.
Those who have ears, may they listen;
Hearing is one thing, listening is another.

To listen well,
We must hear well.
When you speak, I will hear.
I will hear, and I will listen.

Friends: Hear and Listen.
Before you begin to speak,
Hear, and Listen.
