All roads lead to Rome.

Geographical place names do not need to be shown as explicitly locative (they lack the prefix that marks them in Zulu) but can be indicated by being preceded by a classifying locative noun, such as mjini.

HAB.go.3SG among way all to Rome

"Lead" is transitive so it can't have an inanimate subject. Instead the verb has zero person marking, used when the subject is less specific (or animate but non-human), creating a meaning similar to "one goes".

(Edited because the word for "go" changed)

:con: Htoleiþe

The equivalent of Rome for speakers of Htoleiþe is Dorban, but no one says "all roads lead to Dorban" unless they're talking about actual roads and exaggerating. There is still a very similar proverb, though, with the same meaning:

Nesûça cëd pikûçne comeisoðeþar.
/ˈneʃɯçɑ ˈcœd ˈpikɯçne ˈcomeɪ̯ʃoðeθɑɹ/
nes-ûç-a c<ë>d pik<ûç>ne com-ei-soð-eþ-ar

All days lead to a sunset.
or
All days are paths to a sunset.
