Quote Number: 1040
Source Note: This translation was made with Google Translate and I believe that it is very accurate. However, if you see any errors or have suggestions for a better translation, please leave a comment, thank you!
Also, I am recording all proverbs as attributed because there is little record of the origin of nearly all proverbs, and many of the ideas and concepts from proverbs are found in similar sayings in other languages and cultural traditions.
Hello, I just happened to find this post and someone might have mentioned it already, but the correct translation is
“DEN SOM KÖPER DET HAN INTE BEHÖVER STJÄL FRÅN SIG SJÄLV.”
*STJÄL (not STJÄLA)
Stjäla = to steel
Stjäl = steals
Thank you very much, I will make the change.
