Translation of Haitian Creole text:


I salute you, my friend,
You look, but you do not see everything.
You speak, but you do not say all.
Those who have ears, may you listen;
Hearing is one thing, listening is another.

To listen well,
You 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.
