Hands that give also receive. Every secret is eventually revealed. The pot that belongs to many is stirred poorly and boiled even worse. It’s a fine sermon about fasting when the preacher just had lunch. No matter if the child’s born with a flat nose, as long as it breathes. The strong forgive, the weak remember. When one is helping another, both gain in strength. He who does not go to sea knows not how to pray. When the treasure chest is open, even the just man sins. Little by little one walks far. The devil’s wiser more on account of his age than on account of being the devil. Anger of the mind is poison to the soul. Every donkey has its own saddle.
