With willingness, there is a possibility. A man finds what he takes to be small; it will only be big again when he loses it. A person slips, and a ladder falls on him. Moth will eat the finest linen. An empty drum gives loud sound. Be sick then have fun. Before you let your voice be heard, first lick your lips. Better one bird in the hand than 10 birds on the tree. Beware, the enemy lies under your blanket. Calm water does not mean there are no crocodiles. Cannot dance but blame the floor as uneven. Death is the bride of life.
