Three different races of people find it impossible to get long well

and yet a single tree has accepted three hundred different varieties!

Nature is awesome! Humans are awful!

We have to learn to live like a turtle
which can draw inwards its five limbs.

We pretend NOT to see what we find disturbing.
We pretend NOT to hear what we find disturbing.

We DON'T speak / do / eat what we find disturbing.

A proverb a day to brighten the day!

504a.
Der weise Herrscher regiert mit einer eisernen Faust,
die in einem Samthandschuh versteckt ist!

504b.
The wise Ruler rules with an iron fist hidden in a velvet glove!

A good father is one who is firm and gentle.
A good mother is one who is gentle and firm.

If the parents are 'all firm' or 'all gentle' their children will
either avoid them altogether or twirl them round their little finger.

The same is true of a ruler who is the 'parent' of all his citizens.
He must balance both firmness and gentleness appropriately.

His gentle velvet glove makes him approachable.
His iron fist can clearly say "This far and no further!"

footnotes:
Der = The
weise = wise
Herrscher = ruler
regiert = rules
mit = with
einer = an
eisernen = iron
Faust = fist
die = that
ist = is
versteckt = hidden
in = in
einem = a
Samthandschuh = velvet glove.

Women need three palm sized triangles for guarding their modesty -

which leaves NOTHING to imagination nor good taste nor good sense!

Men need only one triangle - may be of a larger area!

Lucky Adam and Eve could clad themselves with fresh leaves everyday!

A proverb a day to brighten the day!

A wise man :
One who knows very well what he knows very well and also what he does not know very well.

footnotes:
Ein = A
weiser = wise
Mann = man:-
Einer = One
der = who
sehr = very

was = what
er = he

P.S

Today I am feeling naughty enough to become a 'VISU' instead of being a 'VISA'
and play with these words in German!

I just completed my entire course in German Duolingo in a record time ( ???? )
of exactly 180 days - completing 133 Topics with an average of 25 lessons (or even more) under each Topic!

Learning is my Opioid - my intellectual pain killer!
No Problem even if I get addicted to this pain killer!!

I could coin a sentence, which is even more complex than the one given above.
Here are the German version and English version given in that order.

Word meanings won't be necessary since the same words appears in different word orders!

Let us get going!

Ein weiser Mann weiß nicht nur sehr gut, was er sehr gut weiß;
weiß aber auch sehr gut, was er nicht sehr gut weiß!

A wise man not only knows very well, what he knows very well;
but also knows very well, what he does not know very well!

P.S:
This is one of the reasons why I had kept a very low profile in the forum recently.
What I have done is just discovering the Tip of the Giant Iceberg called German!
There is so much more to explore/ learn / revise and memorise beyond the Duolingo!

Good luck to ME! :)

A proverb a day to brighten the day!

505a.
Es werden Fehler gemacht, um zu lernen, was nicht zu tun ist!
Machen Sie also niemals zweimal denselben Fehler!

505b.
Mistakes are made to learn what not to do!
So Never make the same mistake twice!

Life is too short to keep on repeating the same mistakes over and over again.
The wise people learn from the mistakes committed by the others around them!

The younger children have this additional advantage.
They learn a lot from the mistakes committed by their elder siblings.

ஆதி3த்ய ஹ்ருத3யம்​

“நான் ஒரு சாதாரண மனிதன்” என்றே தன்னைப் பற்றிக் கூறிக்கொண்ட ஸ்ரீ ராம பிரானுக்கு; ராம ராவண யுத்தத்தைக் காண வந்த அகஸ்தியரால் உபதேசிக்கப் பட்டது இந்த ‘ஆதி3த்ய ஹ்ருத3யம்.’

“இது புண்ணியம் வாய்ந்தது. எல்லாப் பகைவர்களையும் அழிப்பது. வெற்றியை அளிப்பது. மங்களம் நிறைந்தது. பாவங்களை நீக்குவது. கவலையும், துன்பத்தையும் போக்குவது. ஆயுளை வளர்ப்பது. மூன்று முறை இதை நீ ஜபித்தால் ராவணனை வெற்றி கொள்வாய்” என்று அகஸ்திய முனிவரால் ஸ்ரீ ராமனுக்கு அருளப்பட்டது.

ஆபத்துக் காலங்களிலும், மிகுந்த கஷ்டங்களிலும், பயம் ஏற்படும் சமயங்களிலும் இதை பக்தியுடன் ஓதினால் துன்பங்கள் விலகும். உள்ளத்தில் தைரியம் உண்டாகும். உடலில் புதிய சக்தி பிறக்கும். பயங்களும், கிரஹ பீடைகளும் கஷ்டங்களும் விலகி விடும். சகல சௌபாக்யங்களும் கிடைக்கும். கண் பார்வை நன்றாகத் தெரியும்.

ஸ்ரீ ராம ஜெயம்.
