  • Without rice, even the cleverest housewife cannot cook.
  •  
  • You can't expect both ends of a sugar cane are as sweet.
  •  
  • One mouse dropping ruins the whole pot of rice porridge.
  •  
  • Teach a man to take a fish is not equal to teach a man how to fish.
  •  
  • When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
  •  
  • When you drink the water, remember the spring.
