A stone from the hand of a friend is an apple. Open your mouth before you eat. One must talk little, and listen a lot. He who has no spoon will burn his hands. A donkey which goes to grow horns returns with its ears cut off. Not all the flowers of a tree produce fruit. It is only the water that is spilled; the bowl is not broken!
