You do not teach the paths of the forest to an old gorilla. He who is free of faults will never die. No matter how full the river, it still wants to grow. When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion. The witness of a rat is another rat. When the bee comes to your house, let her have beer; you may want to visit the bee’s house some day. A loose tooth will not rest unless it’s pulled out. What comes out of the mouth has lost its master. When a fool is cursed, he thinks that he is being praised. Even if thin, the elephant still remains the king of the forest.
