Source Notes: If you know a source for this quote please leave a comment, thank you! This proverb was translated into Turkish with Google Translate, if there are errors I apologize and ask that you leave corrections in the comments.
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.
