The soldiers’ blood, the general’s reputation. If a flea had money, it would buy its own dog. Sleep has no master. You will often see a high collar above an empty stomach. Not everything that is good to eat is good to talk about. Words in mouth, no load upon head. I came here to drink milk; I didn’t come to count cows. Fire is at a mouse’s tail, he thinks it’s cool breeze.
