When building a house, don’t measure the timbers in the forest. To the patient man will come all the riches of the world. Though the palm tree in the jungle is big, who knows how big its yield will be? The elephant never gets tired of carrying its tusks. Smoke does not affect honeybees alone; honey-gatherers are also affected. Only when the tree is big and strong can you tether a cow to it. Let your love be like the misty rain, coming softly, but flooding the river. If you try to cleanse others – like soap, you will waste away in the process!
