Do you know what the English equivalent to "sa w pa konnen pi gran pase ou"? Is it "Ignorance is bliss"?

No... It's not equivalent to "Ignorance is bliss".

Tout sa w pa konnen pi gran pase w.
All that you don't know is greater than you. literally

I'm not sure what the English equivalent is.  This proverb means that things that are beyond our knowledge and understanding are greater than us.  We can't control the things we don't know.  And sometimes when fate puts them in our way, they can change our lives in ways that we did not plan.  They are greater than us. "Yo pi gran pase nou."
