Body is easily satisfied but not the heart. Early corn is best, so the firstborn is the one to delight in. It is the destiny of the donkey to carry the heavy burden. The mouse does not talk back to the lion. The real journey of discovery begins in old age. Don’t despise the nut, one day it will be a palm tree. There is not enough room for two elephants to sit in the same shade. What the guest would like is what the host is ashamed to offer as not being good enough and the guest is disappointed. Chance all; see what destiny yields. It is the voyage not the ship that matters.
