Women and cats in the house, men and dogs in the street. With patience you go beyond knowledge. Wisdom goes not always by years. The best word is the unspoken word. In times of famine no bread is stale. Honey is sweet, but the bees sting. He who hears no advice will not reach old age. Cast no dirt into the well that gives you water. By perseverance everything reaches its target. As the old crow sing, so sings its fledglings.
