PROVERB: MOUNTAIN

THE FARTHER CLIMBED, THE HIGHER THE PASS; THE FARTHER ACROSS
THE DEEPER THE STREAM, THE ROAD OF ADVENTURE IN LIFE RUNS THROUGH
STEEP HILLS AND TROUBLED WATERS; MAN FINDS MORE DIFFICULTIES AS HE
PUSHES ON WITH HIS TASK IN THIS WORLD.

PROVERB: AX

A FELLOW WITH AN AX IS NO MATCH FOR A WOMAN WITH A NEEDLE.
THE PRICK OF A NEEDLE GIVES ONLY A SMALL PAIN, BUT THE FALL OF THE
AX MEANS INSTANT DEATH. SO, AN AXMAN MUST SURRENDER TO A NEEDLEWOMAN
UNLESS HE IS REALLY ANGRY WITH HER, FOR HE DARES NOT WIELD HIS
MIGHTY AX OVER HER HEAD.
