kahrees_xx Basically means that children watching and emulating their parents is the right way.
A child resembles their parent for either good. Or bad. Some parents aren't worth emulating but Okonkwo considers his best friend, Obierika, a good example for Obierika's son, Madueke. Obierika is a good foil and a sort of mirror for Okonkwo , for us to compare the brusque Okonwko to his quieter friend who is a great man in his own right.

My maternal grandfather's version of this proverb/adage
is: A lion does not beget a goat.

iamloocas NATURE'S BREATH by Lucas.
I watched the night eclipse the day;
As the sun sank into the horizon.
The silky blue sea glistening in the fading sun's rays
Effaced by the image of a man on a distant boat.
Happy birds and their chirping sound - orchestra of the seacoast...
I have been sitting here for hours, feet buried in the sandy shore.
The shade of the palm tree slowly fading but still obscuring the shadow of my figure.
In the company of the seashells, footprints and holes...
Made by amphibians seeking shelter beyond the sea foam.
Like a fresh fallen snow, the sand shifted under my feet...
As I broke into the rhythm of the tidal wave.
Yeah, nature clearly understood the purpose of this getaway.
Because the world is a vale of tears....
And more often than not my eyes have engaged in its festivity.
Today, like scattered ashes...
I will lose my worries in the evening breeze;
Let them disappear beneath the ocean's depth.
For "the poetry of earth is never dead";
It's exemplified in nature's breath. - Lucas.
