"Habit is a tall mountain, hard to overcome or pull down."  African proverb  for February 2.  From the calendar "African Wisdom for Life" by Annetta Miller

I guess this is referring to some of our "bad habits."  It really is hard to change those but worth it.

It's interesting but there are not that many tall mountains in most African countries, especially West Africa. They say that landscape influences our culture.  It probably explains a lot of our cultural differences.  This is a more typical landscape in Africa.  This one with Baobab trees is from Senegal.
