To be without learning, is to be without eyes. You must get your son, your wife and your bread from your native village. The King searches for a crumb. God, take it in shirt and give me one in fur. He is proud like a French dog. Offer the lazy man an egg, and he’ll want you to peel it for him. It’s good when a dog is a friend, it’s bad when a friend is a dog. I can neither read, nor write, but they promise to make me a king. He is happy like one who got a steed for present. From a big cloud comes little rain.
