Singing “Halleluia” everywhere does not prove piety. Saying that it’s for her child, she gets herself a loaf of bread. What one hopes for is always better than what one has. By the time the fool has learned the game, the players have dispersed. No one tests the depth of a river with both feet unless he is prepared to swim. If all seeds that fall were to grow, then no one could follow the path under the trees. The stomach has no holiday. The wealth of the greedy ultimately goes to the community. The bitter heart eats its owner. If you look at a king’s mouth, you will never think that he ever sucked his mother’s breast.
