THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

*Happiness is like a field you can harvest every season.

*An elderly man who wears corns round his waist makes himself the mockery of fowls.

*Those who waste time only hurt themselves.

*A good deed deserves something good in return.

*The man may be the head of the home but the wife is the heart.

*There is no medicine against old age.

*When your neighbor's horse falls into a pit, you should not rejoice at it, for your own children may fall into it too.

*Children are the reward of life.

*A lie can destroy a thousand truths.

*What is inflated too much will break into fragments.

*You don't need painkillers for another man's headache.

*What you don't want to eat should not be held close to the nose.

*We will water the thorn for the sake of the rose.
