Make do with what is available. The devil always paints himself black, but we always see him rose-colored. Life has always been a mixture of joy and pain, wealth and poverty. To overcome many problems, to go over the waterfalls on a bicycle. Shine now for your day will come. Neither with God or the Devil. When you are really hungry no bread is too hard to eat. Nicknames are used in case the Devil comes asking for you. If you can buy the cow by the pound why buy the entire cow? What goes around comes around. He who hangs out with a dog will learn how to bark. Absence is the enemy of love; as the distance is from the eyes, so it is from the heart.
