~~~~~

Wise people use their tongue to count the teeth.

~~~~

You cannot fatten a pig on the market day.

~~~~~

If you want to eat toad, look for a fat one, so that you’ll well deserve being called a toad-eater.

~~~~~

Do not tell the man carrying feaces that he stinks.

~~~~~

Even an ant may harm an elephant.

~~~~~

A mother does not throw the baby away with the bath water

~~~~~

You cannot shave a man’s hair in his absence.

~~~~~

~~~~~

Strong people make things happen, weak people let things happen.

~~~~~
