Proverbs:
> Like the man of Ngesias, who left his serving of food to chase a chicken
Refers to a young man of Ngesias who was with a girl in the bush and was on the brink of persuading her to make love when he saw and gave chase to a chicken. Of course, he lost both the girl and the chicken. One may leave one task unfinished and initiate another, failing at both
> It's like when the men of Ngesias clamored over what they had lost (after a party of raiders had attacked without warning and taken a head as a trophy).
Don't cry over split milk.
> That man is like a duck.
The native duck, debar, doesn't fly very well, or high like other birds, it doesn't walk or run like some animals, it can't sing well, and it doesn't swim as well as a fish. But it can do all these things. Applied to a person who seemingly can do many different things, none of them expertly. "Jack of all trades."
> A man whose breechcloth is closed

A well-organized man, particularly one who uses his money carefully; hence, sometimes, a stingy person

> Disposing the group at Ngetkeuang.
The saying pertains to a situation that occurred at Ngetkeuang, a hamlet in Peleliu. Some members of a group about to sail north were already at the docks ready to board their canoes and set sail with a good strong wind from the south, slightly at an angle to the course they would follow and ideal for sailing. Impatient, the group at the dock finally left the remainder behind and the wind was so strong that they were soon well on their way. The phrase is applied to a wind that is strong, steady, and from the south, like a steady "tradewind"
