PROVERB

IF YOU SPIT IN THE WIND IT WILL COME BACK IN YOUR FACE.
THE ABOVE PROVERB COULD BE INTERPRETED AS MEANING: IF YOU DO
HARM TO SOMEONE OR INTENTIONALLY HURT THEM, SOMETHING BAD WILL
HAPPEN TO YOU AS WELL. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO
DO WRONG TO OTHER PEOPLE AND GET AWAY WITH IT, YOU SHOULD
BE PREPARED TO RECEIVE THE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOUR ACTIONS.
