"Si n pa sove diyite n, Diyite n ap sove kite n."
In this quote, the first “sove” means to defend, to salvage, to save.
The second “sove” means to run away, or to flee
“Diyite”, of course, translates dignity or self-respect
“sove kite” translates to run away from..... literally to run away and leave.
Egzanp: Li sove kite m – He ran away and left me.
So literally, the quote says “If we don’t defend our dignity it will run away from us”
which basically means “If we don’t salvage our self-respect we’ll lose it” …… something like that.
