(Excerpt from Jamaican Proverbs, People and Places)

Camptys Foundation

The Pocket



Educational development system that empowers children, particularly those with learning disabilities, helping them to build vocabulary and learn to read.

Silence is not golden where injustice reigns

If we don't till our soil it will give rise to weeds

One person sees a hole; another sees an opening.

Love is like a baton; it's made for passing!

We mustn't forget

where we came from

but equally we must remember where we are going.

Look behind you

and reach out;


the hand you take may be your very own.

Trees bear fruit, fruits have seeds, seeds hold trees.


Everyone, indeed every thing has something to offer in the cycle of life.

God is

not impressed

by stupidity.

It's better to run with winners and lose

than to run with losers and win.

You can never enter the space of

an eagle

if you sustain the mind of a chicken

No matter how vast

the darkness is,

the tiniest of lights can penetrate it.

We can dress up as

much as we want;

people are only interested

in our spirit for once it leaves, they get rid of our body.

The fact that you can fit in doesn't mean you will fit in;

choose your space carefully.
